This program is designed for students who already have at least five years of experience working in public diplomacy (engaged in international advocacy, international publicity/public relations, international broadcasting, cultural and/or exchange work or other work which the admissions committee deems to fall within their definition of public diplomacy). The program is taught over a single calendar year beginning with a summer course introducing the advanced study of public diplomacy and ending in the middle of the following summer with the submission of a piece of research work. USC is a member of the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA).
Students must choose at least 8 elective units of PUBD or other Annenberg School graduate courses. A maximum of 8 units may be taken at USC outside the Annenberg School; these courses must be approved by the program director and may be selected from a variety of disciplines.
