Course summary


This programme offers students and practitioners the chance to study in-depth, the evolution, practice, and theories of diplomacy in international settings. The knowledge and skills you will acquire will enable you to progress into a range of careers, be it in international settings or more locally. The MSc in International Diplomacy offers you the chance to study in-depth the evolution, practice, and theories of diplomacy in international settings. It is suitable for students and practitioners with an interest in deepening, extending or challenging their understanding of diplomacy and diplomatic practices, broadly defined as the practice of political interactions and contestations between states; between states and non-state actors; and between citizens and states. As such, it offers critical examination of the evolving field of diplomatic studies; and both practitioners and those with an interest in the subject will complete the programme with a fuller understanding of how diplomacy works; when, where and how it occurs and what diplomacy means to different audiences and in different contexts. A feature of the degree is the focus on both traditional and non-traditional diplomatic actors and practices; a feature that is designed to broaden your career options.


The modules are assessed by a variety of assessments, written essays, research reports, some presentations, and the dissertation module by a 15,000 word dissertation.

Assessment is varied and includes the use of essays, skills portfolios, reflective diaries, exams, workbooks, presentations, reports, posters and practical projects. Most modules combine several forms of assessment.


The course is suitable for students interested in diplomacy, international relations or global security, who have completed an undergraduate degree in a related subject; and it is suitable for practitioners from all over the world, who want to learn more about their craft, or who are seeking to enter the diplomatic service, national or local government in Britain or their home countries, or to embark in careers in politics, charities, activism, or NGOs.
