Program Description:

Norwich University's Master of Arts in Diplomacy (MDY) is delivered conveniently online and provides insight into crucial global topics in order to build the leaders and innovators of tomorrow. Through a core curriculum that examines theories on international relations, international law, the world economy, the management and resolution of international conflict, terrorism and post-conflict nation building, students can acquire an in-depth understanding of foreign relations through both theoretical and practical application. You can tailor your education to your specific needs with a choice of four customizations: International Conflict Management, International Terrorism, International Commerce or Cyber Diplomacy.


The International Conflict Management concentration is oriented toward avoidance, management and mitigation of conflict in this increasingly conflict-oriented world and is designed for civilian and military professionals who must apply a broad range of skills in diplomacy, conflict resolution or management, and post-conflict nation building.

The International Terrorism concentration examines the growing threat of terrorism in the international community. The need to explore this threat is obvious. But the complexity of this threat is not so obvious, and is in need of examination by those that are attempting to combat it. The concentration focuses on two major aspects of terrorism, state sponsored and non-state sponsored terrorism and then explores the international community's response to this global threat.

The International Commerce concentration focuses on the role of private-sector commerce in the international system by examining internal and external environmental conditions when conducting commerce in a global environment. The program is designed to explore the impact of economics, law, politics, and culture on multinational commerce endeavors to help increase the understanding of the global commerce environment.

The Cyber Diplomacy concentration study today’s fundamental issues, debates and events in International Relations pertinent to the world of cyberspace. Develop an understanding of the relationship between diplomacy and cyber security through research and a capstone project. Construct international communications models while assessing previous international cyber diplomatic issues. Apply your knowledge by recommending actions regarding various phases of international cybersecurity incidents.
