Months of entry
Diplomatic relations, international negotiations, foreign-policy decision-making processes, and the conduct of foreign policy constitute important features of international politics.
This programme is designed to introduce you to theories, issues and processes connected with diplomacy and foreign policy. It is especially relevant if you are thinking about, or currently working in, diplomacy, international NGOs, and global policy and politics.
You will participate in debates and mock negotiation exercises. Distinguished practitioners with experience in the field contribute to elements of the programme. We may organise student trips, for example to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London.
You will take five taught modules each assessed by a 5,000 word essay. The programme culminates in the writing of a 20,000-word dissertation in a subject area of your own choosing.
