The Master of Arts in Intercultural Conflict Management (MA-ICM) was created as a program of studies strongly oriented toward practical applications. It is a non-consecutive, Master's level program, designed according to recognised higher-education criteria. The programme complies with the requirements of the Bologna Declaration and subsequent communiqués.
According to the Berlin Communiqué 3 and paragraph 35 of the Berlin Law on Higher Education (BerlHG), MA-ICM graduates may apply for PhD programmes. The MA-ICM training is well suited to the requirements of the job market.


The Master's program represents a transdisciplinary and practice-oriented curriculum which commingles a multi-dimensional theoretical and methodological approach to social conflict with a strong focus on participatory practical social action. Thus, the program capacitates students for managing real-world social conflicts in transnational and intercultural contexts, so that students can carry out their own specific focus in a broader field of work opportunities, including NGOs, governments and international organizations.

Since its inception 19 years ago, the Intercultural Conflict master programme at the Alice Salomon Hochschule Berlin has carried through profound changes in its initial structure. These changes represented the result of two interrelated causes. On the first place, they were associated with the observations and proposals made by its students in several programme evaluations over years. On the second place, they reciprocated the manifold changes experienced by the world in social, political, cultural and economic terms during the last two decades.

Thus, the programme came over from a semi face-to-face structure to a completely face-to-face structure in 2010, its original quantitative and qualitative methodological approach was thoroughly restructured in parallel, so that a more participatory and action-related approach could be accomplished, and a concurrent Spanish-spoken programme was established in 2014.

Proudly based on this tradition of continuous change and improvement, the Intercultural Conflict master programme brings forward three major changes on this occasion.

First, the length of the programme has been drawn out from three to four semesters. This change is associated with the programme’s constant search for a close interrelation among theory, methodology and practice. To this end, the length of the programme has been drawn out from three to four semesters so that students can establish a profounder relation with the social world surrounding them without time constraints. By participating in the social, political, cultural and economic conflicts occurring in Berlin for a longer period of time, students can commingle their learning in the classroom with their actions concerning real-life conflicts much more effectively.

Second, the programme has undertaken an international cooperation agreement with the Sociological Research Institute and the Educational Sciences Institute of the Benito Juárez Autonomous University of Oaxaca, located in Mexico. This agreement brings about the creation of a "sister" master programme in Mexico, which will maximize the mobility opportunities for students between Berlin and Oaxaca for students. The development of this agreement commenced in 2014 and presupposed enormous efforts from both parties, with the common aim to maximize the radius of both study and action across broadly different social environments for students.

Third, the content modules have been thoroughly restructured into three transversal modules stretching out over three semesters, which commingle “classroom learning” with social action training in the context of real-world conflicts from the beginning of the first semester until the end of the third semester. This modification represents the result of manifold discussions and multiple contributions from both, the academic stuff and the students of the Intercultural Conflict master programme, with the only aim to bring about an approach to social conflict in which theory, methodology and action coalesce into one another.
