    The doctoral program trains students in the skills of practice, applied research, policy and program development, historical critique and analysis, and theoretical foundations of the field.

    The mission of the doctoral program is to advance the study and practice of dispute resolution by mentoring and developing practitioners trained in practice, research, theory, teaching, and informed leadership in the field. Students pursue a substantive study in dispute resolution while drawing from a variety of theoretical perspectives and the knowledge of an experienced, interdisciplinary faculty. The 82-credit-hour degree program is designed to prepare graduate students for careers as advanced practitioners, college and university educators, researchers, theoreticians, consultants, program evaluators, and program administrators.

    The Ph.D. training focuses on improving skills for reflective practice, understanding and mastering qualitative and quantitative research knowledge and analysis, developing professional leadership skills, and producing publications of quality and substance.

    The online Ph.D. program is the only one in the fields of peacemaking and conflict resolution. Students enrolled in the distance doctoral program will participate in one week long residential institutes on the Fort Lauderdale campus twice per academic year, as well as online Web-based courses. This flexible format allows mid-career working adults, and those unable to attend the residential doctoral program, to study conflict resolution in a creative, rigorous, and structured fashion.

    The online Ph.D. program began in September 1999. There are currently 50 online doctoral students. Accepted applicants may start their studies in the summer semester beginning in April or the Fall semester beginning in September.
    Students complete 2 semesters of a field-based practicum and one semester of a teaching practicum. The Director of Practicum assists students in locating and developing practicum sites in her or his geographical location.

Interlibrary loan arrangements through networked organizations such as the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC), the Southeastern Florida Information Network (SEFLIN), the Consortium of Southeastern Law Libraries (COSELL), and the National Library of Medicine provides a broad access to a wide range of materials. The library also has lending arrangements with large research libraries in the Midwest (Michigan State University and Wayne State University), which provide priority document delivery services to students. The Einstein Library is a cooperating library of the Foundation Center in New York, giving students access to collections for grants and foundation research.
