Diplomacy Online Master's Degrees: Take On Today's International Hot Topics

By Joe Aguilar

Which master’s degree program classes are you most likely to attend along with an FBI agent, a bank manager, a former Special Operations officer, and a Department of Defense counterterrorism specialist? The Master of Arts in Diplomacy, of course.

Diplomacy is a field that brings together diverse groups of students and faculty to contribute to forums on global topics like no other. Professor Stephen Twing of Norwich University’s Diplomacy program notes that many of his fellow faculty members have come from “previous careers in the military, the diplomatic corps, and the intelligence community,” and many of the students “are in the midst of successful military, NGO (non-governmental organization), IGO (inter-governmental organization) or corporate careers.” With such a mix, you’re bound to have some interesting learning experiences.

Advantages of an Online Diplomacy Degree

If you want to join a community of scholars focusing on topics like International Conflict Management, International Commerce, and International Terrorism, you should consider an online master’s degree in Diplomacy. Many working professionals find that they can attend and contribute to an online master’s program in ways they couldn’t with traditional brick-and-mortar graduate programs. Diplomacy graduate Stanley Janusz puts it this way, “Personal circumstances nearly immediately ruled out driving back and forth to classes several evenings per week.” Online colleges design their programs to include features like threaded discussions, reading, writing, and workplace-oriented assignments that you can complete at any time—day or night.

What Courses Are Included in a Diplomacy Master’s Degree?

Core curricula generally provide overviews of historical and current global theories on topics including International Law, Modernization, and the International Economic Political System. Then students pick a concentration to focus on areas such as International Commerce, Terrorism, or Conflict Management. Some degrees can be completed in as little as 18 months.

If you want to prepare for a career where your finger will be on the pulse of global events, let an online Master of Arts in Diplomacy get you started.
