The Society of Public Diplomats is the nation’s first student-run organization in the field of public diplomacy. It aims to further develop the field of public diplomacy through research, events and community building.
The organization is a resource of public diplomacy knowledge for students with a budding or extensive interest in the field; being a part of this organization gives one access to insider resources on how to find public diplomacy internships, how to navigate public diplomacy in the digital age, how to launch your public diplomacy career and how to dispel disinformation.
Annually, the organization produces Public Diplomacy Magazine, the Master of Public Diplomacy Conference, the Roving Conference to Washington, D.C., the International Roving Conference, and a calendar of events in Los Angeles, CA.
The Society of Public Diplomats has a strong connection with the Master of Public Diplomacy program; however, it is open to all students in any USC program undergrad and graduate level.
