Against this backdrop, the MA Program in Diplomacy Studies is intended to elucidate the role of diplomacy as a main vehicle and mechanism for systematically addressing multilateral issues, which can no longer be effectively dealt with exclusively from a narrow unilateral or bilateral vantage point.
The focus on the role of collaborative diplomatic mechanisms is designed to provide students with new insights, concepts and analytical tools for fully understanding the enhanced functions of diplomacy in this new setting. The program in Diplomacy Studies is primarily intended for practitioners, who are employed in a variety of public and private international, transnational and multilateral organizations, future diplomats, and interested academics abroad and in Israel. At the completion of the program, students will receive an MA in Political Science, with a specialization in Diplomacy Studies.


An important element of the program will be the simulated analysis of concrete diplomatic decision games and action games. In the course of this simulation, the students will experiment with a range of diplomatic (and strategic) concepts, techniques and scenarios in a controlled and structured effort to emulate real-time crisis situations, with emphasis on the mechanisms and tools for mitigating and defusing them.

In this setting, students will experience in real life the relevant issues of a multicultural, multiethnic society.

This program aims to prepare graduates, policymakers, officials and other professionals to deal effectively with critical national decisions. Facing a long-standing challenge at the center of a mostly hostile regional environment, Israel has accumulated the experience and has developed a comprehensive approach to national security, combining academic theory and real-world constraints. Graduates of this prestigious program can expect to develop careers in governmental, security and private organizations, which are interested in enhancing their ability to deal with strategic affairs, challenges and opportunities. At the completion of the program, students will receive an MA in Political Science, with a specialization in National Security Studies.
