Academic Study

The academic study of public diplomacy is part of our mission.  Many members of the Council teach public diplomacy at universities in Washington and beyond the Beltway.  Several of them helped to inform the collection of resources on this page, with the assistance and coordination of PDC Volunteer Pauline Yang.
AU Fellowship: In partnership with American University, the Public Diplomacy Council offers an annual fellowship to students in AU’s interdisciplinary International Media program, a joint master’s program administered by its schools of Communication and International Service. As a PDC-AU collaboration, this fellowship represents the PDC’s commitment to engage further with the academic study of public diplomacy while encouraging the next generation of practitioners.
University programs:  Below you will find a selection of university programs and courses, mostly at the graduate level, that focus on diplomacy in the public sphere.
Course descriptions: Our members have also supplied syllabi and descriptions of university courses that center on public diplomacy.
Bruce Gregory’s Resources, an occasional compilation by the Washington-based professor, covers the periodical literature on public diplomacy comprehensively.  Here is the latest, and a link to past editions.
