Overview

The primary goal of the major is to train students as leaders who will be cognizant of and sensitive to the requirements of changing realities in the international community in the belief that such knowledge will enable them to value diplomacy over other methods of dispute resolution.
It focuses on cultural predispositions, historical underpinnings, systems of governance, and diversity of interests in the global arena. The courses span a number of disciplinary boundaries including political science, economics, history, and geography.
The major is designed to offer students an opportunity to understand the diverse cultures of the world as well as to prepare them for an international career. It includes a study abroad experience that will increase language competency as well as improve cultural understanding by exposing students to a different geographic setting. Students will be offered an opportunity for an in-depth examination of the
issues and problems associated with increasing world interdependence through coursework, as well as through interaction with international scholars and practitioners.
