The MA in Global Diplomacy brings together a thorough understanding of the theoretical and conceptual foundations of contemporary diplomatic practice with a practical approach to international affairs and contemporary international politics.

The programme employs cutting-edge research in the broad fields of diplomatic and international studies and is delivered in a flexible, engaging fashion.

Ideal for anyone pursuing career progression in diplomatic or related fields requiring expertise in government, not-for-profit, corporate or academic environments.

Flexible study

You study one module at a time over a sixteen-week study session. There are two study sessions (and two dissertation sessions) per year. If you follow this without interruption, you should complete in the minimum two-year period.

You should expect to study between 10-12 hours a week during these sessions.

This MA will benefit anyone who works in foreign services or foreign affairs around the world and acts face to face with international diplomacy on a daily basis. But it could also benefit those working in international finance, international law or other aspects of business, who face similar challenges and might welcome a greater understanding of diplomacy and negotiation in all of its forms.
