Program Overview

Diplomacy and international law are critical components in addressing issues of seminal public concern. As populations flee repressive regimes and political issues have ramifications beyond any one state’s borders, the need for real-world solutions and the leaders who can implement them is paramount.

Core Courses

Our interdisciplinary courses are designed to help you think critically about complex diplomatic and international legal issues in real-life contexts, while applying theory to practice and addressing some of the key questions facing the world today.
