Deans from four universities discuss "Trends in International Relations Curricula: Implications for Public Diplomacy." They will consider such questions as, How important is it to teach diplomacy/diplomatic history? Is the number of courses in diplomatic studies declining at your school? If so, why? Do you view public diplomacy as a sub-field? Is public diplomacy a concentration in your curriculum? What is your assessment of student demand for these courses? Are they primarily electives offered to the extent adjunct professors (often former practitioners) are available to teach? What are two recent innovations at your school that seem particularly attractive to students? What courses would you offer if additional resources suddenly became available?
