Graceland University enjoys a special agreement with the John C. Whitehead School of Diplomacy and International Relations at Seton Hall University. The agreement offers far-reaching benefits for Graceland students pursuing careers in diplomacy and international relations.
The agreement paves the way for Graceland graduates to attend the prestigious Whitehead School, one of the top-ranked programs of its kind in the world. These students have opportunities to interact with world-renowned diplomats, political luminaries and leaders in the business world. Tremendous internship possibilities at the UN, USAID, IRC, UNICEF, international think tanks, NGOs, the State Department and others are accessible to Whitehead students. All the while they are earning graduate degrees leading them to exceptional careers around the world.
Seton Hall is located in South Orange, NJ, just a half-hour from New York City, where official and social functions position Whitehead students among the world's most influential decision makers. Not to mention that NYC is arguably the most captivating city in the world and offers limitless cultural, culinary and entertainment opportunities.
The expanded international business degree GU now offers, and other programs, make Graceland graduates ideal candidates for the Whitehead School. A background in statistics, research methods, macro and micro economics is exactly what Seton Hall is looking for.
There is a vast network of connections at the Whitehead School linking its students to organizations and government agencies and there are internship choices like NPR, the Secret Service and the Stimson Center, a global policy think tank.
The Whitehead School has a summer institute program that allows GU students to study at Seton Hall as undergraduates and enjoy internships as well. At the summer institutes GU students can study Russian, Cantonese, Arabic and other languages, critical to future career postings. Scholarships are also available to GU students so they can study abroad at the American University in Bulgaria, and possibly at the American Universities in Rome and Cairo in the future.
