How are the Public Diplomacy courses organized?

The program begins in early July with a new gateway seminar that introduces students to the study of public diplomacy and communications. For the fall and spring semesters, students will combine coursework in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications with coursework in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.


The following summer, students complete an off-campus experience in Washington, D.C., Accra, Cape Town, Geneva, Vienna, Shanghai, Singapore or Strasbourg, among other options. These credits count toward one of the two required career tracks for the International Relations program.

Students finish the program during the second spring semester with work in Washington, D.C., at Syracuse University's Paul Greenberg House. In addition to a required internship, two special seminars are offered addressing issues in public diplomacy and communications. Students may intern with a wide range of organizations and/or corportaions in both public and private sectors, from government agencies and NGOs to public relations and communications firms. Past internships include but are not limited to:
