At the School of Diplomacy, students evolve from consumers of information to producers of knowledge — immediately ready to contribute to a variety of fields. The Diplomacy and International Relations program is offered at Seton Hall University.


Our Diplomacy and International Relations customizable academic program offered by Seton Hall University builds essential skills and helps students cultivate a deep understanding of who they are and how they can have a positive impact on the complex, interdependent world they've inherited.

The programme

We work collaboratively with students to shape practical learning opportunities such as internships, international study seminars and original research projects; students apply their knowledge and skills in international relations directly to real-world situations. With guidance from faculty mentors, students turn academic projects into published works that advance new ideas, discuss current issues with United Nations officials and much more. 

As a diplomacy student, you'll have the opportunity to take classes and complete professional projects with former ambassadors, United Nations officials, practicing judges and attorneys. Your classroom experience will hone your skills in policy analysis, negotiation and conflict management, professional writing and research methods and help you build expertise in one or more areas of specialization.

But you won't just study — you'll actually practice — diplomacy and international relations. Our required internship program capitalizes on our proximity to New York City and presence in Washington, D.C., providing you with access to the United Nations, private firms, government and international nonprofit organizations.

You'll also sharpen your networking abilities by engaging with distinguished guests and successful alumni.
