CPD Mini-Courses in Public Diplomacy
For over 16 years, the USC Center on Public Diplomacy has been the go-to program for public diplomats and international communication professionals looking to sharpen their skillsets and analytical capabilities essential for success in today’s complex environment.
Our training utilizes the latest social science research and cutting-edge communication tools in real-time public diplomacy challenges. It provides a setting for practitioners to re-examine and refine their skills in a group of peers and to build an international network of colleagues.This spring, we have launched three new mini-courses on creating audio stories, graphic design, and using data for PD strategy. Also new is a USC alumnus discount. Make sure you complete that section on the application form so we can confirm with the university.
Our online workshops take a deep dive into some of the most critical issues in designing effective and sophisticated public diplomacy strategies. The intensive, fast-paced learning also allows for personalization, as participants bring real-time projects to exercise their skills and to problem-solve with faculty and peer participants.
Below is a sample of what it's like to learn and collaborate in real-time with our expert faculty, such as USC Annenberg Associate Professor of Professional Practice & CPD Faculty Fellow Amara Aguilar, who teaches "Multi-platform Content Strategy for Public Diplomacy."
