Online Master’s in Diplomacy and International Affairs
(International Relations)

EUCLID, an international intergovernmental organization with university mandate, offers to select students from the general public its flagship program which is an online master in diplomacy and international affairs (MDIA).

It is the only Master’s degree program in diplomacy organized by an international intergovernmental organization and officially used by active diplomats over 4 continents, currently counting one ambassador (to France / UNESCO) as a program graduate.

The MDIA is an advanced program delivered by a treaty-based and treaty-practicing institution, and as stated by the United Nations in a rare instance of explicit confirmation, “the UN Secretariat recognize Euclide- Pole Universitaire Euclide and the other four UN institutions … as being accredited.”

Academic Presentation

This unique Master’s degree focuses on diplomatic practice and the actual application of theoretical knowledge, rather than the advancement of academic knowledge for its own sake. Also, international relations are examined from the unique perspectives of various actors including developing countries.

The EUCLID MDIA is used by professional diplomats working for EUCLID Participating States and can be considered an excellent route to pursue a career within governmental bodies, NGOs and international organizations.

Thanks to its low tuition and institutional relationships, it is of special interest to European and African students.

Within certain parameters, the EUCLID Online Masters in Diplomacy (similar in contents to what other institutions present as an Online Masters in International Relations) is customizable, with elective courses focusing on:

  • Regional diplomatic affairs
  • International Relations: from theory to practice
  • Small islands issues
  • Inter-ethnic and inter-religious relations
  • E-government
  • Sustainable economic development
  • Non-governmental organizations
  • International Law and Treaty Law
