International Relations

Study international relations and prepare to be a global citizen, becoming a knowledgeable, effective communicator and analyst as you develop your potential to grow as one of tomorrow's leaders. Graduates with International Relations degrees work as lawyers, in banking and finance, and at colleges and universities, as well as government agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. 

International Relations (IR) is a multidisciplinary program that provides you with solid foundations for graduate study or jobs in government, the nonprofit sector, education, diplomacy, and international business. You will develop knowledge of the historical and political features of the international system, of foreign countries and peoples, and cultivate valuable analytic and communications skills. International Relations majors may pursue one of four distinct study tracks: International Business, International History, International Politics or Language and World Cultures.


Since 2008, the IR program has produced seven Fulbright award winners and over two dozen graduates admitted to high-quality law schools or graduate schools.
