Course Summary

Overview

If you feel like the world has taken a worrying turn, an MA in Diplomacy, Law and Global Change could set you on the path to changing it.

Are you interested in the nature of the world in which we live, the problems it confronts and how to respond to these problems?

Focusing on the emerging global order of the 21st century, this course aims to provide an understanding of the development and contemporary practice of diplomacy and the rules of international law and helps to prepare students with useful skills for careers in diplomatic services, international organisations, non-governmental organisations or international business.

Course information

We consider one of the core issues presented by the international system as it has evolved is the establishment and maintenance of order and the reconciliation of this goal with that of the achievement of justice for the competing claims of groups, both territorial and non-territorial, and individuals.

This fascinating course explores the emerging global order of the 21st century from the perspectives of diplomacy and international law. Rapid change at both the domestic and international levels - globalization - is transforming the policy environment and context in which both are constrained to operate. You will study the changing environment and new challenges it presents, such as gender equality, climate change, modern slavery, terrorism and organised crime.

Career prospects

Employers are looking for individuals with the ability to work across different cultures, and to possess problem-solving and critical analysis skills.

As well as giving you the opportunity to achieve two additional awards (Level 7 Certificate in Strategic Leadership and Management and a Level 7 Award in Professional Consulting), the CMI accredited Global Professional Development module may set you apart in a competitive job market. Students should gain practical leadership skills to critically evaluate and develop solutions for complex, inter-related, multi-faceted issues that you will experience in your future organisations.

This course is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute.
