E-Learning Programs in Cultural Diplomacy

Professional Development Programs in Cultural Diplomacy



The Center for Cultural Diplomacy Studies has developed the E-Learning Programs in order to offer individuals interested in the field of Cultural Diplomacy and related areas the opportunity to increase their experience in this expanding field.

The E-Learning Programs have been designed to be studied at a distance, giving students the flexibility to study from any location in the world within a structured and supportive framework. The programs are built in a way that allows individuals currently working full time the ability to acquire academic knowledge with maximum flexibility regarding scheduling and learning formats. The programs have been designed in a flexible way to allow students to structure their instruction around their own schedules.

The courses will be delivered via an e-Learning platform, designed to help participants meet the course's learning objectives through a self-paced study routine supported by multimedia, required and optional readings, and a wealth of other information adapted specifically to full-time professionals.

The programs offer access to high profile lecturers, audio-visual content, a library of reading materials, and professional networking opportunities to promote one's own projects. Students will have access to innovative research and publications in the field and a distinguished and renowned faculty. In addition to obtaining an expertise in Cultural Diplomacy, students will have the possibility to create and implement their own programs of Cultural Diplomacy with the support of the ICD and its partners.
