The International Relations (IR) Program is an interdisciplinary program that offers students a broad education that cuts across several disciplines while building up expertise vertically around sets of classes in international relations broadly defined, methods and languages. It is embedded in the social sciences and their shared methods while making room for diversity of disciplinary approaches. Faculty and students of different methodological and substantive inclinations can find their intellectual home in IR. Drawing upon the disciplines of anthropology, economics, history, politics and sociology, the major emphasizes both the international system and specific regions, including their languages, political economies, histories, institutions, cultures and position in the global context. These emphases are supported by requirements in modern languages, methods, the participating disciplines and study abroad. Experiential aspects of the program introduce insight and empirical richness to the study of international relations among people and societies.

The goal of the International Relations Program is to develop in students the ability to think analytically and independently about the structural features of global society and specific regions. Graduates are prepared for a variety of postgraduate professional and academic degree programs. Career possibilities include government service, law, business, non-governmental advocacy, journalism, teaching and research.
