Personalize your Master’s Degree or Graduate Certificate
If you wish to stand out as a professional who engages others to achieve better outcomes and who effectively addresses conflict and builds relationships, restorative practices will give you the practical skills and powerful concepts to advance your career.
At the world’s first graduate school wholly devoted to restorative practices, our experienced faculty will work with you to create a coherent plan of study that matches your professional interests. IIRP graduates model a restorative approach to their practice and leadership in education, justice, counseling, social work, administration, pastoral work and many influential positions, building stronger communities.
In two years or less you can complete your studies – from Canada …
Participation in IIRP professional development events you attend in Canada – Basic Restorative Practices, Restorative Responses to Adversity & Trauma or Restorative Leadership Development: Authority with Grace – can be applied to hybrid graduate-level credit at the IIRP Graduate School. Following the event you can delve deeper into what you have learned by adding online coursework to gain a richer understanding of the theories that are the backbone of this practice.
This interactive online coursework also opens the door to a vibrant international community of graduate students, as you enjoy the convenience of completing your studies at home.
…or choose to attend events around the world.
You can complete a majority of the degree program through online courses or independent study. However, if the you wish, the program can be tailored to be more of an in-person learning experience by participating in the IIRP’s professional development events, symposia and conferences, in dozens of cities across the globe.
