The International Affairs major program integrates a strong foundation in political science and economics with interdisciplinary electives and foreign language study.

Students are required to gain intercultural competency via an approved study abroad program or international field experience. International Affairs majors are encouraged to participate in applied service-learning, internship, and research experiences that are multicultural or international in scope. Students pursuing the International Affairs major may be interested in careers and graduate study in fields such as international affairs, international relations, comparative politics, public policy, diplomacy, global environmental policy, human rights, international law and organization, international business, international political economy, international development, peace and conflict resolution, international service, and international humanitarian relief.
