What will I learn?

The Undergraduate Program in International Relations and Global Affairs (IRGA) is a unique program addressing these topics. Combining history and political science, economics and law, sociology and psychology, the program provides a coherent interdisciplinary curriculum that allows students to develop their understanding of how people, groups, countries, and international organizations interact in different parts of the world.

Learning objectives

IRGA allows students to develop an interdisciplinary knowledge of political, economic, historic, sociological and legal aspects of complex international issues. Studying how these disciplines approach, define and analyze international relations gives undergraduate students a sound basis for graduate studies. It also provides students with essential skills to conduct interdisciplinary research and collaboration, and the tools to understanding real world situations. The program’s interdisciplinary approach goes beyond the language of economics and law, and addresses the historical, social and political concerns that are really at stake, and vice versa.

Career Opportunities

Holding a degree in International Relations and Global Affairs will allow you to consider a number of different options for your future career: your politics, history and economic skills will be the perfect base for journalism or an international career in governmental institutions and NGOs; your grasp of psychology and group dynamics could fit you for a management trainee scheme, and your quantitative skills for international marketing research.
