Studying diplomacy is more than just about politics. Environmental issues and climate change, technology, conflict resolution, science, human trafficking, global health, and the preservation of cultural property have also been included in the portfolios of diplomacy. In the MA program in Diplomacy Studies at the University of Haifa, coursework will be focused on the fundamental role of collaborative diplomatic mechanisms. Students will become equipped with the analytical tools, concepts, and new ideas for understanding diplomacy in contemporary society’s complex and ever-changing landscape.
The Middle East and the Mediterranean region serves as an extremely relevant setting for the study of diplomacy. This one-year program is taught entirely in English and allows students the opportunity to uncover solutions in a wide range of cultural, economic, and political issues. The Diplomacy Studies program is intended to attract practitioners who are currently working in international, transnational, multilateral, and private organizations as well as those who wish to become researchers, academics, or diplomats in Israel and abroad.
Participants in this program will study at the only comprehensive research university in Northern Israel, which is also known as the most pluralistic university in the country. Students will share the hallways and classrooms with 18,000 students, including Jews, Christians, Muslim Arabs, Druze, Bedouins, as well immigrants and native Israelis. The university offers many extra-curricular activities such as tours of ecological and cultural sites and a wide array of volunteer opportunities on and off campus.
