B.A. in International Relations & Diplomacy

The Bachelor of Arts in International Relations & Diplomacy prepares you for a variety of international careers. As the world becomes increasingly smaller, and each region more multicultural, there is a need for professionals who can work across cultures in technology, management and government relations.

Our vibrant curriculum equips you with the ability to think and act globally. You will engage in a comprehensive and exciting examination of international politics, economics and social relations. The flexible, interdisciplinary 120-credit program offers professional academic advisement to help you develop a course of study that suits your career goals. Distinguished professors will interact with you in small class settings and will foster the exchange of diverse information, perspectives and ideas.

Coursework is supplemented by internships at renowned institutions, including the United Nations, for a richer understanding of international affairs. These educational and occupational experiences will prepare you for positions with multinational corporations, private foundations, think-tanks, non-profit organizations and government agencies, and are excellent preparation for graduate study.
