Department: Political Science 

The international affairs concentration is designed for those students who wish to pursue a graduate degree and/or a career in this field. An appropriate sequence of courses enables students to acquire a cross-cultural perspective and obtain a broader comprehension of the relations among nations in our complex and dynamic world. The growing interdependence of the global community has increased the importance of this field of special study. In addition, as the number of nation-states has multiplied and governmental and non-governmental international organizations continue to expand, so have opportunities for national, foreign and international service.
