Haifa University MA in Diplomacy

Program Description

The dynamics of the contemporary, complex, interconnected and highly-charged international environment presents new challenges for scholars, policy analysts and decision makers, both at the global level and in the context of the Middle East. 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.

Highlights

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.
 

Haifa University MA in Israel Studies

Program Description

The International Master's Degree Program in Israel Studies offers students the opportunity for an in-depth study of the State of Israel from the beginning of the Zionist movement until the present. Emphasis will be placed on the complexity of Israel's society, including its multicultural character at home as well as its relation to the Jewish Diaspora.
 
The Israel Studies Department at the University of Haifa, known for its academic excellence, has developed a challenging, interdisciplinary course of study. The campus is a living laboratory where Jews, Muslims, Christians, Druze, Bedouin and Bahá'ís study side by side. Students will experience a dynamic, cultural mosaic where students of all ethnic backgrounds encounter and engage, becoming acquainted with each other and, even if they do not agree, learn to understand and respect each other. In this setting, students will experience in real life the relevant issues of a multicultural, multiethnic society.
 

Haifa University MA in National Security

Program Description
