M.A. in Government at IDC Herzliya
 
Peace and Security
 
If you are thinking about having a career in a government office, in NGOs, international media or presidential campaigns, why not take the first steps at a school that allows you to gain practical experience while studying? IDC Herzliya offers a Government M.A. program with two main fields of specialization: security and counter terrorism or diplomacy and conflict resolution.
 
 
What does the program looks like?
 
Many of the courses in the program focus on Israel and the Middle East; in addition, there are courses that discuss political changes in other parts of the world. Aside from the two specializations mentioned above, other two fields of expertise are available in Hebrew: Public Policy and Administration or Political Marketing.
 
The program places much emphasis on first-hand experience, thus students will have to attend several workshops practicing negotiations and decision making methods. They will also be provided with many internship opportunities and may apply to various positions in Israeli ministries and parliament, academic research centers and NGOs, such as Amnesty International, Stand with Us and ASSAF.
 
The program includes field trips to various sites in Israel, including: the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem, UNDOF or UNFIL bases on the northern border, and a trip abroad to NATO HQ in Brussels, Belgium.
