Prepare for a career in international, regional, and global affairs; diplomacy; or the Foreign Service. Learn about the structure of the global political system and the possibility and limits of multilateral diplomacy to address the most critical global issues facing the planet.

Courses in the United States, Europe, and South Africa will provide you with both western and non-western perspectives on international relations and an appreciation of the complexities of negotiating across cultural, socio-economic, and political differences.

A special feature of the degree is the Traveling Seminar in which you learn directly from senior leaders in government, NGOs, and intergovernmental organizations in each region.

Gain skills in negotiation, diplomatic leadership, crisis management, strategic decision making, collaborative problem solving, and applied research. Graduates will be positioned to work with government agencies, NGOs, and intergovernmental organizations, particularly in situations of conflict, crises, and rapid change.

Through our broad global network, SIT will work with you to find meaningful practicum positions with NGOs, intergovernmental organizations, and other entities. You may also work with your advisor to develop your own practicum.
