International Relations & Diplomacy

The International Relations & Diplomacy major is intended to provide students with an introduction to the relations between sovereign states in a continuously evolving international system. Centering on the post-World War II period, it looks at the historical genesis of the current international system, at the relations, conflictual and cooperative, between states in areas like collective problem-solving, diplomacy, and trade and at the role of international organizations, like the United Nations, in mediating these relations.

 

For students beginning their studies at OSU Summer 2012 and AFTER, a foreign language minor is required to complete an International Studies major.  If you begin your studies at OSU Summer 2012 or AFTER you will follow the NEW major requirements.

 

Current students (those who began their studies at OSU Spring 2012 and BEFORE) will follow the TRANSITIONAL major.* 

 

*  Returning graduates (those who have already earned a bachelor's degree from OSU) will follow the NEW major requirements.

 

Brochures for the International Relations & Diplomacy major are listed below.
