Department of International Relations

International Relations is a field of study that is absolutely vital to the future of countries and international affairs. IR is an interdisciplinary undergraduate major that combines political science, economics, history, foreign languages, and other fields. The major gives students the knowledge and skills to understand relations between nations, as well as the internal workings of other countries and the role of nongovernmental actors in world affairs. Most of all, it enables you to expand your horizons to beyond a domestic/ nationalistic perspective, and very few other subjects cover such a broad range of topics such as law, politics, economics, history, technology, communications and languages. The course will make you aware that international relations is not only about war, rather includes peace across the globe.  Undoubtedly, International Relations is a brilliant program.  You will learn so much and your eyes will be opened to global issues, theories and reasons for war, bargaining and all sorts.
