Are you interested in pursuing a global career? Seton Hall's School of Diplomacy and International Relations offers an unparalleled education, quick access to UN, professional internships and more.

United Nations

The awards we've won are great, and they reflect the hard work of our members. But Seton Hall's Model United Nations is really about developing character and diplomacy skills that are applicable to real life. It enhances research and public speaking abilities while building the confidence needed to assert ideas.

At the School of Diplomacy and International Relations, we offer courses in Washington, D.C., at the United Nations, and on our suburban New Jersey campus — just 14 miles from New York City. You'll have the opportunity to not just study — but actually practice -diplomacy and international relations.

Before graduation, you'll master a foreign language — with advanced proficiency — and complete at least one professional internship. In a given semester, you might study public international law, learn about sustainable development or conduct research for an international study seminar in Ethiopia.

In all your courses, your classroom discussions will be enriched — by our diverse student body, by interactions with visiting international leaders and by real-world, practical perspectives from our distinguished faculty.
