Bachelor of Arts Major in International Relations

The International Relations major is designed for students interested in global and international studies. In addition to the CORE Requirements and General Education Requirements, students choose series of upper division electives, in consultation with their advisor, that allow them to focus on political science, anthropology, or economics. Each of these disciplines provides an excellent foundation for a range of careers in the US and abroad.

International Politics

Political science upper division electives are taken by students interested in comparative and international politics. Students can take up to three upper-division courses in international or comparative politics in addition to an anthropology course that approaches international politics from a different disciplinary perspective. This prepares students for careers in government and law, as well as for graduate school.

Cultures and Societies

Anthropology upper division electives are taken by students interested in culture and in learning about the diversity of human behavior.  Students can take up to three upper-division courses in anthropology in addition to a political science class that approaches social and cultural change from a different disciplinary perspective. These courses prepare students for working and living in different cultural settings, as well as for graduate school. 

Economic and Commercial Affairs

Economics upper division electives are taken by students interested in international economics, or who intend to work in international business. Students who wish to focus on international economics can take two upper-division courses in economics, in addition to political science and anthropology courses that approach economic issues from the perspectives of their disciplines.  The major prepares students for careers in business and economics, as well as for graduate school.
