The Master of Diplomatic Studies is a professional program that prepares students for a future in foreign affairs, journalism, or business. This program combines a traditional approach to the study of international relations with practical training in the techniques of contemporary diplomacy and international negotiations. Political and economic problems today invariably transcend national boundaries. This means that the international agenda encompasses scientific, technological, cultural, and humanitarian concerns, as well as the more traditional area of diplomatic activity. From this perspective, the Master of Diplomatic Studies program is designed to equip students with the necessary tools and methodologies to excel in all fields of international relations.

Launched in 2012, the Latin American Studies Center aims at promoting relations between the Arab and Latin American regions. Both regions share many key similarities in terms of histories, cultures, goals, and challenges. A partnership between these two Global South regions is mutually advantageous and critical in light of these similarities and the previous lack of scholastic collaboration. The Center will create a new generation of scholars specializing in Latin American studies and production of new intercultural knowledge.

As the only institute in the region to host a Latin American Studies Center, UJ seeks to establish itself as a center for intercultural collaboration and research production. The center will educate students on the socio-cultural, political, economic, and theological characteristics and issues of Latin America. It will also encourage student and faculty exchange between the two regions in order to foster scholastic cooperation and coordinated research possibilities.

Established in 2013, the Institute works on a national and regional level to assess and enhance the electoral process and its body of knowledge. The phenomenon of the "Arab Spring" and its emphasis placed on democratic elections highlights the necessity for a regional approach towards promoting a professional, transparent and accountable electoral process.

The Institute has three primary national functions: 1) to provide Jordanian electoral practitioners and parliamentarians with electoral policy guidance through research, consultations, studies, and workshops; 2) to develop an open source library of reports, information, and data about the Jordanian electoral process; and 3) to offer opportunities for practitioners and students to participate in electoral fellowships and studies with Election Management Bodies (EMBs) and international organizations.  Regionally, the Institute serves as a research center for EMBs, parliaments, and other universities on electoral policy and practice as well as serving as the on-going secretariat for a regional association of election officials. The Institute's research, policies, and initiatives will help to strengthen civil society locally and regionally as well as create a generation of scholars engaged in strengthening the democratic and electoral process.
