Master Degree in International Relations and Diplomacy
The Master Degree in International Relations and Diplomacy 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. Drawing from multiple fields including finance, law, history, philosophy, and theology, this program is decidedly interdisciplinary. A diverse faculty of seasoned practitioners represents and reflects the cross-cutting issues and interests that inform international relations today.
The University’s 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.
The program also encompasses study visits to international organizations.
