Diplomacy & International Relations Concentration

“From quite early on, diplomacy has been as much about the negotiation of meaning, value and knowledge as of the negotiation of interests and positions.”

- Costas Constantinou and Paul Sharp, “Theoretical Perspectives in Diplomacy,” The SAGE Handbook of Diplomacy, 2016

The Diplomacy and International Relations concentration provides a foundation for those interested in pursuing careers in the foreign service or advanced studies in the field.
