The Certificate Programs in International Relations & Cultural Diplomacy are month-long courses that explore the role of Cultural Diplomacy in contemporary international relations. The program features lectures, seminars and workshops led by experts from the fields of international politics, diplomacy, academia, civil society, and the private sector. During their time in Berlin, participants will have the opportunity to take part in cultural and social activities and to visit historical and contemporary landmarks such as the German Foreign Office, the German Parliament and the Berlin City Hall as well as cultural institutions and foreign embassies. The course combines both theory and practice, making it a unique experience for those interested in this innovative and growing field of study.

Academic Components
The program provides a thorough background in International Relations and Cultural Diplomacy, using a historical and case study approach. The program addresses contemporary international issues, with classroom seminars supplemented by lectures and briefings at international and non-governmental organizations; educational events, conferences, tours, and meetings with foreign officials are further incorporated into the curriculum. Participants will meet with leading experts working in international organizations, embassies, and academic institutions, and will engage with specialists in the areas of International Relations, Politics, Human Rights, Culture, Peace Building, Multilateral Diplomacy, Conflict Resolution, Development, and Economics.

The Certificate Program is designed for students, professionals, and those who would like to enrich their background and enhance their education. Candidates are required to have an undergraduate degree of any field of study or to be enrolled as students in a university/higher education institute as a pre-requisite for application.  Proficiency in English is also pre-requisite for application (Studies in English of at least 1 semester or extensive working experience in English are sufficient as proof of the English level). Applications for the Certificate Program in Cultural Diplomacy are accepted on a rolling admission basis and can be submitted at any time. However, we encourage potential students to apply as early as possible due to limited class sizes.
