Minor in International Relations

Studying the international system, its key actors and the nature of their interactions, prepares you for global work.

Understanding international affairs prepares you for careers with organizations, businesses and public-service agencies that work across borders.

Students study international structures and the nature of interactions among states, international agencies, non-governmental organizations and other actors. Courses highlight the experiences of people during the beginnings of globalization, wars, mass migrations and more.

In addition to gaining knowledge of international economics, law, and foreign policy, students can choose a region for in-depth study. Credits in foreign language and study abroad experiences can be applied toward this minor.
