MA in International Relations and Cultural Diplomacy
The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy in Cooperation with Dubrovnik International University
(Berlin and Dubrovnik, October 11th, 2011)
(www.icd-academy.org) Application Form>
The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy and Dubrovnik International University (DIU) are pleased to announce the graduate Master of Arts program in International Relations and Cultural Diplomacy. Offered by DIU in partnership with the ICD, the program will combine the traditional academic components of international relations with a new focus on the role of soft power and cultural diplomacy in contemporary global affairs.
While the study of political science has been a cherished tradition of academia, the developments outlined above demand the identification of entirely new theories and models. An understanding of the challenges faced by the contemporary world requires an interdisciplinary approach; International Relations and Diplomacy should not be understood only as disciplines of Political Science or Political Theory, but also be interpreted from the perspective of art and culture, economics, law, and other social sciences.

The Online Degree
In order to provide access to this MA degree to those applicants who are not able to travel to Berlin and Dubrovnik for the MA degree (such as professionals or diplomats with full time jobs) we have developed an online version of the MA in International Relations and Cultural Diplomacy. This degree would follow the same structure and curriculum of the on-site Masters Degree offered through the two institutions; however would be completely administered online and offered to those who could not physically come to Berlin or Dubrovnik. This program, like the on-site program, will be facilitated in English. For more information about this online degree, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
DIU and the ICD do not consider any one element of an application exclusively. Rather, our admissions panel considers academic achievement as well as personal qualities such as strength of character, motivation and the ability and willingness to take on new academic challenges. Additional factors, such as essays, letters of recommendation, and interviews are also a vital part of the admissions process. Our aim is to attract students from a variety of backgrounds and countries that will foster a unique and diverse learning environment.
The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy is an international, not-for-profit, non-governmental organization with headquarters in Berlin, Germany. The goal of the ICD is to promote global peace and stability by strengthening and supporting intercultural relations at all levels. Over the past decade the ICD has grown to become one of Europe’s largest independent cultural exchange organizations, hosting programs that facilitate interaction among individuals of all cultural, academic, and professional backgrounds, from across the world.
