The Art of Diplomacy

Seton Hall’s School of Diplomacy is a laboratory of learning and action, committed to the professional development of a diverse, service-driven student community.


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. Students have the opportunity to not just study — but actually practice -diplomacy and international relations.

Courses and classroom discussions are enriched by our diverse student body, interactions with visiting international leaders and by real-world, practical perspectives from our distinguished faculty.

Our courses allow students to deepen their understanding of the complex challenges facing our world by examining a range of topics including:

  • Comparative Homeland Security
  • Risk Management
  • Intelligence
  • Cybersecurity and International Relations
  • International Conflict and Security
  • Public International Law
  • Economic Aspects of International Relations
  • Civil Liberties


Our director of internships works one-on-one with students to tailor the school's internship experiences to individual interests. Students receive personalized advice based on their career goals.

Here are just a few of the internship opportunities our students have pursued recently.
