The practice of diplomacy in the 21st Century requires new and creative responses to the complex nature of bridge building, community formation and conflict resolution.
While the work of nation-state diplomatic corps representatives remains central to such efforts, diplomacy is also practiced by multiple non-state actors and individuals, including business people, scientists, artists, community organizers, activists, clergy and educators. Diplomacy is truly transprofessional.
DePaul's program in Applied Diplomacy addresses these realities through an innovative program designed to train a new generation of diplomats. At both the undergraduate and graduate level the curriculum is multidisciplinary in expertise, deeply rooted in an ethic of collaboration and is designed to serve the needs of bridge builders across multiple boundaries of difference.
DePaul’s bachelor’s program in Applied Diplomacy offers undergraduates a rich array of interdisciplinary approaches to the study of diplomacy in preparation for multiple career trajectories. Students can choose among ten concentration options, including both traditional approaches to the practice of diplomacy as well as cutting edge developments in the field.
DePaul’s master’s program in Applied Diplomacy is designed for post-graduate students interested in nontraditional approaches to the field. Six concentrations offer rich professional development opportunities and open pathways to dynamic, meaningful careers.
