A degree in diplomacy offers many benefits, not the least of which is the number of high paying positions available. Graduates attain skills and knowledge that allow them to analyze a wide variety of international issues. They gain insight into global issues and often take an active role in diplomatic processes.

Many colleges and universities around the world offer this degree in a variety of settings including online options, as well as brick and mortar classrooms. Typically, programs run between one and two years. The cost can vary from school to school, depending on things like geographic location, format, and whether the school is public or private.

With a degree in diplomacy, graduates may qualify for a large number of governmental and private sector fields including international trade, international relations, and security. Conflict management, foreign policy analysis, governance, education, and non-profit work are some other careers that graduates may find interesting.
