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.
Students pursuing the Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree are required to complete a foreign language minor in a language appropriate to the chosen specialization.
Those choosing to complete the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree must complete a minor in one of the following areas: Agribusiness, City and Regional Planning, Environmental Science, General Business, Geographic Information Science, or Global Public Health.
