Major and Minor
Be a part of the solution by studying global issues and diplomacy with an international relations major in political science. You'll learn about Latin American politics, Asian history, world religions and much more. Then you can test your diplomacy skills as you compete with students from other colleges at the Model UN Conference.
Everything from world religions to the politics of Russia and Eastern Europe. You'll discover that politics is much more than what leads up to Election Day.
An introductory course designed to develop analytic tools that provide an understanding of complex issues in world politics. You will focus on distinguishing different actors, patterns of interaction, availability and use of resources and interaction between domestic and external politics as evidenced in East-West, North-South and regional conflicts.
Majoring in international relations will position you for any number of rewarding career options or set you on the path to continue your education. And you'll gain the satisfaction of feeling like you're making a difference.
