Applications are now being accepted for the joint Master of Arts in International Law and Diplomacy (hybrid and online formats), offered by the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) and the UN-mandated University for Peace (UPEACE). Limited Fellowships are available.

The Master of Arts in International Law and Diplomacy (hybrid and online formats) is a graduate programme permitting students to specialize in the interface between international law and diplomacy. It will not only broaden students’ knowledge in the field of international law and its various foundational dimensions, but will also equip them with the knowledge and skills necessary to work in the field of diplomacy and related international careers.

In this programme, offered both in a Hybrid Format (asynchronous classes online and face-to-face on the UPEACE campus in Costa Rica), and an Online Format, students will analyze the various dimensions of development, including environmental, social, economic, and human dimensions, as well as the theory and practice of diplomacy in the 21st century. The programme will delve into dispute settlement and conflict resolution.

In addition, students will attend skills development and coaching sessions designed to support their professional careers and employability. Enrolled students will have the opportunity to participate in an optional field visit to Geneva (Switzerland), and/or The Hague (Netherlands), immersing themselves in the heart of diplomacy and international law, respectively.

Limited Fellowships are available for nationals from Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS), for this UPEACE-UNITAR programme. More information can be found on the programme page under the tab, “Pura Vida Fellowships“. UN Staff and Costa Rican Nationals are eligible for partial fee waivers.
