Menu

The Minor in Applied Diplomacy is designed to equip students with an understanding of the transprofessional nature of modern diplomacy, which holds that while diplomacy is practiced by nation-state diplomatic corps representatives, it is also practiced by businesspeople, scientists, artists, educators, religious leaders, community organizers and activists, among others. This perspective is the hallmark of the Grace School of Applied Diplomacy, and is the lens through which we aim to inspire minors to see the work they are doing in their respective majors as a vital source of diplomatic knowledge and practice.

The core courses required for a Minor in Applied Diplomacy have been chosen to give the students a strong foundation upon which to build a bridge between their own major and the discipline of diplomatic studies.

The Minor in Applied Diplomacy consists of six courses. Three of these courses must be drawn from among DPL 200, DPL 201, DPL 202 and DPL 203.  Students taking the Minor may also take a fourth course from this group.
