The Political Science Department offers an experiential learning class in mediation: PS 2120. In this one hour credit course, students examine the theoretical basis of mediation and how it works as an alternative to litigation, arbitration, negotiation and other adversarial methods of dispute resolution. They learn and practice specific mediation skills (as mediator and as clients-advocate in mediation) and the details of different mediation approaches, including Restorative Justice. The teaching method is a mix of lecture, videotape viewing and role-play. Members of the Mediation class, along with others, are eligible to qualify for membership in MTSU's Student Mediation Association and may participate in the National Intercollegiate Mediation Association's (NIMA) regional mediation tournament and the annual mediation tournament. For more information about mediation check the web page of the International Academy of Dispute Resolution on this year's mediation program.
