This Global Diplomacy - MENA (Online Learning) programme from SOAS University of London will give you a theoretically and historically informed understanding of the practice of international diplomacy, broadly conceived, and its applications in Middle East and North Africa.
Research is a key component of this programme and upon completion students will have the skills to:
- think critically, with reference to theoretical and empirical (historical and/or contemporary) content about international studies, diplomacy, and political economy in Middle East and North Africa
- develop and practice the ability to see – and to comment on – the strengths and the weaknesses of others’ ideas and arguments.
This MA programme is delivered by the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy (CISD) and the University of London International Academy (UoLIA) in association with the FCO's Diplomatic Academy, using a combination of multi-disciplinary teaching, cutting-edge research and public discussion of diplomacy and international politics in a globalised world.
Students from SOAS’s Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy (CISD) develop an in-depth understanding of international affairs, contemporary diplomatic practice and policy-makers. Graduates leave with a portfolio of transferable skills such as critical analysis, problem solving, negotiation and communication, all of which are valued by employers across a number of sectors.
