What will I learn?

Politics and International Studies provides students with a working knowledge of society and how decisions are made. Governments, politicians, leaders in private industry and ordinary individuals function within a framework of accepted political norms, e.g. notions of justice, freedom, rights and duties. Over time, these received norms are challenged by conventional methods such as voting, political parties, interest group lobbying and protest movements; or the challenge may be by militant or revolutionary means such as radical Marxism, fascist organizations or discrete acts of terrorism. Politics and International Studies systematically examines and presents these phenomena.

Foreign language training and study abroad experiences are also incorporated into the programs.

The Global Governance Concentration introduces theories, concepts and issues in world politics, examining areas such as conflict and intervention, peace and security, human rights, multinational corporations, environmental issues and globalization.

The Global Culture Concentration is designed for those students who wish to develop critical understanding about how cultures are formed, the social and political impacts of cultural growth, and the comparison of different cultures.
