Program Description

Master of Arts in International Relations and Diplomacy HEIDELBERG

Schiller International University - Florida, Heidelberg, Madrid, Paris

The Master of Arts in International Relations and Diplomacy is an academic and professional program that prepares students not only for careers in the foreign service, in intergovernmental organizations, or international businesses, but also in nongovernmental watchdogs or NGOs, think tanks and academic research, consultancy, and journalism as well as public and foreign policy. The program combines problem solving, structural analysis, project development and management with a comprehensive theoretical and critical examination of the political, cultural, legal, and socio-economic practices that make up our increasingly interdependent and complex world.

Because the political and economic problems central to foreign relations today invariably transcend national boundaries, the international agenda encompasses technological, religious, ethno‐linguistic, and humanitarian concerns, as well as the more traditional area of diplomatic activity. Drawing from multiple fields including finance, law, history, philosophy, and theology, this program is decidedly interdisciplinary. It is taught by a diverse faculty of distinguished academics and seasoned practitioners who reflect the cross-cutting issues and interests that inform international relations today.

The University’s regular guest lecture series and simulation exercises also add a unique dimension to the program. Delivered and conducted by experienced working diplomats and professionals in international development and business, these complementary curricular support activities enable Schiller International University’s students to break out of the classroom and gain hands-on experience even as they explore internship opportunities or network with potential employers. Finally, the program encompasses study visits to international organizations within immediate reach of each of the University’s campuses to ensure continuous exposure to real-time developments.
