Diplomacy Studies, M.A.

When thinking about relationships between countries, specifically in Middle East, two words come to mind: “it’s complicated”; not only for diplomats, policy analysts, and decision-makers but also for researchers and scholars. This is exactly why our Master’s program in Diplomacy is especially designed to provide our students with knowledge and practical tools to address current social, political and economic challenges in today’s interconnected global environment, especially in Middle-East regions.
