About

The Cultural Diplomacy and International Events programme is offered at University of the West of Scotland. Delivered in partnership with the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy (ICD) in Berlin, the MA in Cultural Diplomacy & International Events course will teach you the necessary contexts with which events are located: 

  • Political 
  • Economic 
  • Cultural 
  • Social

In addition, you will also learn the most effective strategies and tactics to secure sought after benefits and to acknowledge the potential drawbacks or negative consequences that can accompany the bidding, hosting and legacy resulting from these events.

Having been exposed to real-life professional practice you will be well-versed in presenting your work to a range of stakeholders.

Programme Structure

Our Cultural Diplomatic & International Music course has its first trimester at our Paisley campus followed by a second studied at the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy in Berlin. 

Although the MA Cultural Diplomacy pathway has some core features, you will also benefit from a degree of specialisation that will prepare you for a career in your chosen area of events, sport or music.
