Diplomatic Studies MA
This degree will provide you with the knowledge, language, and transferable skills necessary to prepare you for entry to practical training in diplomacy or a related profession. By taking the MA in Diplomatic Studies you will develop your understanding of the key modes and functions of diplomacy, in both contemporary and historical contexts.
The course will provide you with an advanced understanding of diplomacy as a political activity of central importance to the peaceful, stable and productive conduct of relations between states. You will be encouraged to consider international institutions and areas of the world with which professional diplomats might reasonably be expected to be familiar - such as the European Union.
You will complete one core module - 'The Art of Negotiation' - then choose three option modules from an extensive list of interdisciplinary subjects which, along with your dissertation, allow you to specialise in areas relevant to your profession or career aims.
The course will develop your ability to think both analytically and critically and to produce reasoned arguments encompassing your increased knowledge and understanding of the key issues surrounding diplomatic studies.
This Masters Degree is ideally suited to anyone aspiring to a diplomatic career or professional diplomats requiring additional training. Depending on the choice of options, it is also appropriate if you wish to pursue a career in Government, defence-related work, international organisations, journalism or teaching - or to proceed to a research degree.
