Diplomacy, Culture & Identity Concentration

“’A society’s culture,’ says Ward Goodenough, ‘consists of whatever it is one has to know or believe in order to operate in a manner acceptable to its members.’ The same might be said of the manifest culture of the international society, the diplomatic culture.”
- James Der Derian, On Diplomacy, 1987

The Diplomacy, Culture and Identity concentration provides a foundation for those interested in pursuing multiple career trajectories, including preparation for advanced studies in the field. Students will have the opportunity to place the study and practice of diplomacy into conversation with the disciplines of history, sociology, anthropology, international studies, peace studies, political science and religious studies.

Students in the Diplomacy, Culture and Identity concentration are advised to take GEO 172: Cultural Geography, before choosing five additional courses from the following list.
