What can a background in international relations do for you?

Knowing and respecting how nations interact is an essential skill in in our increasingly internationalized world.

International relations is applicable to any course of study. You'll see the benefits of a deeper global knowledge as you interact with new people and cultures.

There is an urgent need for people who understand vital global issues and appreciate cultural differences.

Our international relations minor is an especially good choice for students interested in diplomacy, international development and international nonprofit work.

You'll explore foreign policy, interstate trade, cooperation and war from a variety of perspectives while studying the relationships between countries, governments, peoples and organizations.

The minor is not open to students majoring or minoring in political science. But it is open for those interested in being a better global citizen.
