About Us

International Relations is an interdisciplinary minor that offers students an understanding of the issues and problems facing the countries of the world as they become more interdependent. The minor probes questions of economics, geography, history, and political issues in an integrated program.

Faculty members involved in the major are drawn from the department of Economics, History, Political Science, and Religious Studies. A committee of faculty members from each of these disciplines, chaired by a professor in the Economics Department, administers the minor.

The minor combines especially well with Science, History, Sociology, and Religious Studies majors, but also brings an added dimension to any major by providing and understanding of international perspectives.

Career Opportunities

The International Relations minor is helpful in preparing students for many careers in the international arena.
