Course content

This programme offers students and practitioners the chance to study in-depth, the evolution, practice, and theories of diplomacy in international settings. The knowledge and skills you will acquire will enable you to progress into a range of careers, be it in international settings or more locally.

The MSc in International Diplomacy offers you the chance to study in-depth the evolution, practice, and theories of diplomacy in international settings. It is suitable for students and practitioners with an interest in deepening, extending or challenging their understanding of diplomacy and diplomatic practices, broadly defined as the practice of political interactions and contestations between states; between states and non-state actors; and between citizens and states. As such, it offers critical examination of the evolving field of diplomatic studies; and both practitioners and those with an interest in the subject will complete the programme with a fuller understanding of how diplomacy works; when, where and how it occurs and what diplomacy means to different audiences and in different contexts.

A feature of the degree is the focus on both traditional and non-traditional diplomatic actors and practices; a feature that is designed to broaden your career options.
