Practical instruction and exercises will take place within a theoretical framework, and students will take an active part in their learning. The programme will develop candidates professional competence and confidence in this exciting area and leads them in the planning and execution of research in this field.
Successful completion of the programme assessment will lead to both NUI Master of Arts award qualification and accreditation to practice as a Certified Mediator by the Mediators Institute of Ireland.
