Public Diplomacy and Strategic Influence

IWP 637
Four credits

This course examines the history, theories, and methodologies of public diplomacy and strategic influence since the end of World War II. The objective of the course is to help prepare the student to integrate public diplomacy and strategic influence with other tools - traditional diplomacy, foreign aid, intelligence collection and covert operations, and military and economic foreign policy - and to condition the student to approach the issue with confidence.

Please note: We recommend that students take Foreign Propaganda, Perceptions and Policy (IWP 631) and Political Warfare: Past, Present and Future (IWP 641) before taking IWP 637.
