Academic Presentation:

This unique Master's degree focuses on diplomatic practice and the actual application of theoretical knowledge, rather than the advancement of academic knowledge for its own sake. Also, terrorism is examined from the several contrasting angles while offering realistic policies options and prevention perspectives.

The EUCLID programs are used by professional diplomats working for EUCLID Participating States and can be considered an excellent route to pursue a career within governmental bodies, NGOs and international organizations.

Thanks to its low tuition and remarkable institutional relationships, it is of special interest to European and African students.

Note: This degree program is distance-based only and requires fluency in the English language.
