MALS and Conflict Management and Resolution (CMR)

Effective Spring 2014, students wishing to graduate with a MALS degree using this concentration must obtain formal approval to do so from the Director, Graduate Liberal Studies Program. An email, with an explanation of why the concentration is desired, should be sent to turrisip AT uncw DOT edu, copy to campbellp AT uncw DOT edu.

MALS Degree + Post-baccalaureate CMR Certificate

Once the GLS Director's approval is granted, students must formally apply to and be accepted by the Graduatae School and the relevant certificate program in addition to the acceptance into the MALS degree program. Simply enrolling and completing the concentration classes is not sufficient to meet the requirements of the MALS degree.

MALS students pursuing a concentration in CMR Post-Baccalaureate must take GLS 502, GLS 598, 2 GLS classes of their choice and a total of 18 hours CMR graduate level courses distributed as follows: nine hours of core classes in CMR and nine hours of electives in CMR as described in the "Required Credit Hours" section of the Conflict Management and Resolution web page Post Baccalaureate Certificate in CMR.. Course listings are also available on the CMR website titled "Course List."

Students who wish to pursue a post-baccalaureate certificate in CMR in addition to the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) degree should consult the above mentioned web page and Dr. Remonda Kleinberg, the CMR Coordinator. Dr. Kleinberg can be contacted at 910.962.4254 or her email address, kleinbergr AT uncw DOT edu.


  1. For MALS students not pursuing a concentration in CMR, only nine non-GLS graduate credit hours will be accepted towards the MALS degree and only six credit hours for crosslisted courses may be used.
  2. Non-GLS courses cannot be used for the Post-Master's in Liberal Studies certificate program.
