About

Interested in the impact of the Syrian refugee crisis or the global armed drone debate? Are you passionate about mitigating global climate change or working to stop human trafficking? Want to learn more about the rise of China or the future of the United Nations? These are among many topics you might explore as a major in the International Relations program of Loyola Marymount University.

Overview

What is International Relations?

International Relations is the study of international conflict and cooperation. Students of International Relations examine the world’s urgent and increasingly complex political, economic and social issues: among them human rights, peace and security, international trade, democratization, and economic development. The International Relations program of Loyola Marymount University encourages students to critically evaluate international affairs, and prepares graduates for lives of active global citizenship.

What do International Relations majors do?

International Relations majors pursue an interdisciplinary course of classes, in political science, economics, and history, among others, seeking a holistic understanding of international issues and transnational problems. Majors also develop proficiency in a foreign language and gain firsthand international experience through a study abroad program or an international-focused internship.

  • Diplomacy and inter-governmental relations
  • International economics, trade, and business
  • Peace and security studies
  • International law
  • Global health, climate justice, and/or human rights
