Course content

Our MSc Diplomacy and International Relations programme provides an umbilical link between theory and practice, providing training in the concepts and applications of research appropriate for the study of diplomacy and international governance in the world today.

Students of the Diplomacy and International Relations master's programme will be provided with a specialised, systematic and in-depth knowledge of diplomacy deploying appropriate theories, concepts and methods associated with practice in the field. You will be challenged to acquire a critical awareness of the New World Order and how this concept relates to current issues involved in the study of diplomacy, learning from the past to deal with the challenges of the future.

The Institute for Diplomacy and International Governance offers masters programmes that keep pace with the changing realities of today’s world. The Institute works with our students to develop tools to grasp these facts of international life, and to prepare our students for careers across many professions.
