Master of Public Diplomacy

Master of Public Diplomacy

Public diplomacy – the effort by one government to inform and influence foreign audiences, while encouraging dialogue between its citizens and institutions and their counterparts abroad – has expanded to encompass the ever-increasing complexity of international affairs. 

The Master's in Public Diplomacy, offered in partnership by the USC Annenberg School for Communication and the USC College's School of International Relations, emphasizes the role of non-state actors, global public opinion, international news and international communication in the public diplomacy process. We are developing the next generation of leadership for international public service, business and nongovernmental organizations.

The Association of Public Diplomacy Students publishes the journal, Public Diplomacy. Please visit the site at
