Time to Complete

The joint Public Diplomacy degree program is designed to be completed in two years of full time study. 

July is the only time of entry for this unique two-school joint degree program. All students will begin their studies in the MS PR program at the SI Newhouse School of Public Communications in the summer.  

Students will be on campus for the summer, fall, and spring of their initial year of study. They can participate in a Summer Global Programs Internship for the MAIR program if they desire. 

They will return to campus for the fall semester, before heading to Washington, D.C., for a final capstone internship program specific to the PD program.
