The International Relations Program in the Department of Politics & International Relations provides students with a interdisciplinary education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels that is designed to prepare students for a wide array of careers.
The Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations is a structured program of university study requiring completion of thirty semester hours of course work. In addition, before declaring their international relations major, students must complete one common prerequisite course (INR 2001 Introduction to International Relations). The major offers courses in area studies, strategic studies, international law and organizations, international relations theory, and includes courses on various substantive issues in international relations. Students are encouraged to focus some course work on a particular region (such as Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia/Caucasus and Russia/New Independent States).
