Let us introduce the new edition of international studies - International Relations and Public Diplomacy (IRAPD)!

The 21st century is a time when the role of diplomacy in the world politics and economy is growing by leaps and bounds. We can observe significant extensions of activities and missions of both diplomatic institutions at national and international level. Thus our mission is to create another edition of international studies jointly offered by the Jagiellonian University in Krakow and the University of Sienna implementing by the funds of the National Agency for Academic Exchange.

The program is addressed to students who want to meet the requirements and changes taking place in a dynamic international and public diplomacy environment. Hence, the project creates an international, 4-semester, English-language MA module. The education program offers courses, above all, in the field of international policy, foreign policy analysis, international economics, economic diplomacy, cultural diplomacy, anthropology heritage and human rights. The IRAPD provides participants with the skills :

  • to analyze international processes, including the aspect of public and cultural diplomacy,
  • to expand knowledge through contact with foreign experts in the area international relations, diplomacy, media and economy,
  • to take advantage of the opportunities to build professional qualifications through internships.

Moreover, IRAPD graduates will acquire skills to work in a multicultural international environment, strategic planning skills, consulting in international project management in both the public and private sectors.
