The Center for Cultural Diplomacy Studies is the world's leading center for the study of Cultural Diplomacy, offering educational opportunities ranging from Weeklong seminars for students and interested professionals to Master's and PhD programs for graduates pursuing careers in academia, diplomacy, government, and the private sector, dedicated either wholly or in part to the field of Cultural Diplomacy.

The educational programs of the Center for Cultural Diplomacy Studies, which are offered in partnership with leading universities and institutions, allow students to analyze, research, and experience Cultural Diplomacy in theory and in practice at the local, state, and international levels. The Center for Cultural Diplomacy Studies focuses on, though its capacities are not limited to, the balancing of "hard" and "soft" power, globalization and the interdependence of nation-states, liberal institutionalism, intercultural dialogue & exchange, and the ability of culturally-based initiatives to further mutual understanding and, in turn, conflict resolution.
