The Washington International Diplomatic Academy’s One-Year Certificate in International Diplomacy is an exceptional opportunity to spend two semesters (September 2021 to May 2022) learning from and working with career ambassadors with decades of experience. Short of actually working in diplomacy, this is the most comprehensive, in-depth and hands-on practical professional training program in diplomatic tradecraft offered anywhere.
The program includes four courses during each of the two semesters, creating optimal conditions for highly interactive, immersive and experiential learning. Our instructors are ambassadors and other professional diplomats who have served in dozens of countries around the world. They provide invaluable first-hand insight into policy-making and implementation, diplomatic protocol, the functions and management of embassies and consulates, diplomatic reporting and writing, negotiation and mediation, political and economic tradecraft, public diplomacy, cross-cultural communication, cyber diplomacy, and other competencies.
Students can apply for $4,000 partial scholarships toward the tuition fee. To learn more, click here.
