Buckingham’s New Diplomacy MA

The Department of Economics and International Studies is launching a new MA in Diplomacy in January. This programme will be taught by both academic staff and former diplomats and, we believe, offers the most comprehensive range of diplomacy-related courses in the UK.

Each module examines some key aspect of diplomacy from both academic and practitioner perspectives. The degree, which has already attracted considerable interest from several embassies in London, aims both to give students the fullest possible academic knowledge of diplomacy and also to prepare students for a range of careers where such knowledge will prove invaluable. Specific modules include Diplomacy, Commercial Diplomacy, Protocol and Etiquette, International Negotiation, The Evolution of Diplomacy, Foreign Policy Analysis, International Law and Diplomacy and The Diplomacy of Conflict and Crisis Management.

As well as lectures and seminars given by leading academic experts in these fields, students will have the opportunity to participate in role playing exercise designed to help their training in various diplomatic skills and also to hear from current practitioners  from a number of countries.
