History of Diplomacy Concentration

“Scholars of diplomacy have identified diplomatic practices across the human experience, spanning the globe and going back before recorded history. Even so, the actual term diplomacy did not enter into usage until the last decade of the eighteenth century.”
- Halvard Leira, “A Conceptual History of Diplomacy,” The SAGE Handbook of Diplomacy, 2016

The History of Diplomacy concentration provides a foundation for those who are interested in pursuing work in education or advanced studies. Students will have the opportunity to place the discipline of history into conversation with the study and practice of diplomacy.
