Minor in International Relations

You can earn an International Relations minor from the Department of Political Science and Public Administration regardless of your major. This curriculum explores the role the global environment plays in shaping politics in the U.S. and abroad and a variety of other topics, including:

  • International organizations
  • Non-governmental organizations
  • Transnational advocacy networks
  • The global economy
  • Sources and significance of such contemporary dynamics as globalization, international norms, democratization and changing power differentials

A low student-faculty ratio ensures that each student receives attention from faculty members who are experts in their fields.
