The Bachelor of Arts in International Relations provides students with a solid basis in two political science subfields—comparative politics and international relations. Students gain an understanding of international interactions, such as conflict and trade, as well as the politics of other nations, such as alternative government forms. Students are exposed to the politics of the world’s major regions through region specific courses. International relations students excel in many professions but are especially well suited for domestic and international work in the public and nonprofit sectors.
