Program Description

international relations MSc

Study an MSc in International Relations and Diplomacy at Leiden University

The two-year MSc program in international relations and diplomacy offers a unique blend of academic education in international relations and political science with practical graduate education and training in international negotiation and diplomacy.

The MSc in international relations and diplomacy is a program taught jointly by Leiden University’s Institute for Security and Global Affairs (Faculty Governance and Global Affairs), the Institute of Political Science (Faculty of Social Sciences), and the Netherlands Institute of International Relations Clingendael.

The location of The Hague is beneficial for this master’s program in terms of substantive focus and the various links to international institutions located in this city. As one of the partners, Clingendael’s objective is to promote the understanding of international affairs, and the institute devotes special attention to European co-operation, international security, and diplomacy.

In the current era of global interdependence, collaborative efforts are needed to meet the most pressing challenges in international politics, security and economics. Increased transnational channels of communication, global trade and capital flows characterize an increasingly interconnected world of both nation states and non-state actors. The resulting challenges to global governance can be met most effectively by patterns of international and transnational co-operation and diplomacy.
