Curriculum

As a diplomacy student, you'll have the opportunity to take classes and complete professional projects with former ambassadors, United Nations officials, practicing judges and attorneys. Your classroom experience will hone your skills in areas such as policy analysis, negotiation and conflict management, and professional writing while helping you build expertise in one or more specialized fields or world regions.

The ten-course program curriculum is fully customizable to meet each individual's current interests and future needs. Through a series of six electives, M.S. students can pursue functional as well as regional specializations, or explore a variety of topics relevant to their career goals.

Our 30-credit Executive M.S. in International Affairs offers students a menu of choices that collectively offer a strong foundation in the key subject areas of international affairs: international security and conflict resolution, international economics and development, international law and organization, and the domestic sources of foreign policy and ethnic conflict.

To complete the program, students choose from elective courses covering all areas of international relations, based upon their specific interests and career goals. Students concentrate on up to two specializations to develop a more detailed understanding of critical global issues and processes. Seven functional specializations and five regional specializations are available.
