Israel is at the focus of the world's attention in both security and diplomacy matters. It is also the center of enormous professional expertise in both these fields. Embodying that unique knowledge and skill, our program brings together internationally renowned scholars and former leading practitioners in both security and diplomacy, offering students an exceptional learning experience in English. Educational tours and meetings with Israeli and foreign officials are incorporated into the curriculum. Students come from all over the world and are encouraged to take up internships and other extra-curricular activities during their year stay in Israel.The program provides advanced knowledge and analytic tools for the study of strategy, diplomacy, decision-making and the shaping of security and foreign policy. The outlook of the program is global, with a special focus on Israel and the Middle East. At the practical level, the program prepares students for engagement in the international arena, defense bodies, international organizations (both governmental and NGOs) and international economic organizations. Alumni and current students in the Security and Diplomacy program have secured jobs and internships at Israel's preeminent think tanks, numerous embassies, media and advocacy organizations, the United Nations, a private security company and other public and private employers.
