Diplomacy & Religion Concentration

“International relations will not stay like it is whether in theory or in practice, whether for scholars and students or for citizens and practitioners. Religion will play a role in that.”

- Mariano Barbato, Pilgrimage, Politics, and International Relations: Religious Semantics for World Politics, 2013

The Diplomacy and Religion concentration provides a foundation for those interested in pursuing work in the foreign service, interfaith contexts, or advanced studies in international relations. Students will bring the study and practice of diplomacy in to conversation with the disciplines of geography, history, Islamic studies, peace studies and religious studies.

Students in the Diplomacy and Religion concentration will be required to take REL 260: Religion and Political Conflict, before choosing five additional courses from the following list.
