Course Overview

The RU International Relations & Diplomacy Programme is focussed painstakingly on inclining itself towards policy orientation via prolonged exposure to global affairs and dynamics of world politics and political functions at the international.

To achieve this the programme critically analyses key areas of International Relations like, Diplomacy, Foreign Policy, International Law, International Security and International Political Economy through a multidisciplinary approach. The programme is very much designed to enable enterprising learners to interact and mix with both practitioners and academicians from in and around Kenya. This enables the RU student to familiarize with both the theory and practice of the discipline. 

International Relations and Diplomacy as a programme answers to the growing need for Kenya to train relevant personnel who can serve in the expanding fields of international relations, international law, peace, conflict and security, global politics and governance, and diplomacy both within governmental institutions and in other organizations located within its borders. Indeed, the programme is informed by the fact that Kenya as a country within the Horn of Africa has hosted many people whose states have been in turmoil. It is also in a strategic position to act as a gateway to East and Central Africa. To continue playing its regional and international role properly, Kenya needs to train diplomats and other graduates who are equipped with requisite knowledge and skills in international affairs.
