What will I learn?

Have you ever considered how countries navigate global politics, form partnerships or solve global problems? In international relations you will learn about global and comparative politics. You will learn valuable skills in critical thought, oral and written communication, and quantitative reasoning—the very skills most useful to employers in all fields, like law, business, and journalism—not just politics.

As an interdisciplinary program all majors are required to complete eight core courses: Introduction to American Politics, Introduction to Global Politics, two economics courses, two history courses, geography and an advanced language course. Beyond the core courses, you will choose one topical concentration in development, diplomacy and world order, international political economy or U.S. foreign policy, and one regional specialization in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America or the Middle East. International relations can compliment your many other interests, major and minors, and prepares you to engage an increasingly complex world.
