Diplomacy & International Law Concentration

“In this world of political entities, each of which theoretically has unchallenged control over its territory...the practices recognizable as contemporary diplomacy and international law grew up.”

- David Clinton, “Diplomacy and International Law,” The SAGE Handbook of Diplomacy, 2016

The Diplomacy and International Law concentration provides a foundation for those who are interested in pursuing graduate work in Law or other fields that require an understanding of international legal frameworks and that incorporate mediation and conflict resolution. Students selecting this concentration will bring the study and practice of diplomacy into conversation with the disciplines of international studies, law, peace studies, political science and writing, rhetoric and discourse.

Students in the Diplomacy and International Law concentration are advised to take INT 323: Public International Law: Peace, Conflict, and Human Rights, before choosing five additional courses from the following list.
