The Master of Arts in International Relations and Diplomacy is a professional program that prepares students for a future in foreign affairs, journalism, or business. This program combines a traditional approach to the study of international relations with practical training in the mechanics of contemporary diplomacy and international negotiations. Laboratory courses for two semesters in diplomacy are mandatory.
The MA program may be completed in two semesters of full-time study. Students can transfer between the London and Paris campuses, exposing themselves to diplomatic agencies in both capitals. In addition to the 36-credit requirement, students must complete nine credits in either three international business courses or in three European-focused international relations and diplomacy courses. With specialization, the Master's in International Relations and Diplomacy can be completed in one year.
Political and economic problems today invariably transcend national boundaries. This means that the international agenda encompasses scientific, technological, cultural, and humanitarian concerns, as well as the more traditional area of diplomatic activity. Students receive coursework in history, economics, political science and international relations.
The international relations program equips students with the expertise they need to pursue careers with international organizations, in law, government, business, or journalism and to move onto graduate programs in political science and international relations if desired.
