The highly competitive one-year MA in Diplomacy and International Law offers you an interdisciplinary degree in partnership with Oxford University’s summer certificate program in International Human Rights Law. Through the program, you will acquire both the fundamental knowledge and practical skills necessary for careers in international law, diplomacy and international advocacy.
The Diplomacy and international law program at The American University of Paris enables you to think critically about complex diplomatic and international legal issues in real-world contexts. By applying theory to practice, you will address some of the key questions facing public and non-governmental institutions around the world, such as “Why do states participate in international institutions that promote global cooperation?” or “How do states and institutions interact when cooperation breaks down and conflict ensues?”
Innovative Solutions, Transferable Skills
Your coursework in diplomacy and international law includes elements of international relations, economics, law and political science to examine the problems of our day – and search for the best way to administer and manage innovative solutions. Through the program you will be prepared with the analytical and practical skills to prepare you to serve across cultures and national boundaries, and to analyze geopolitical and diplomatic challenges. You will develop expertise in negotiation, strategic diplomatic thinking and legal analysis to support your next career step.
