International Relations (B.A.)
The International Relations degree program is designed for students who have a keen interest in bridging different cultures and working in an international environment. The program is centered on the foundation of diplomacy, which is regarded as a driving force in a world that is fraught with conflict. The curriculum delves into various theories that propose that individuals can resolve differences without resorting to fighting or exercising economic power, but by negotiating using knowledge, words, and values instead.
The program offers a comprehensive study of international politics and economics, ecology and ethics, legal regulations, and cultural concepts, in addition to training in the art of diplomatic negotiations. Students in this program will gain a thorough understanding of how diplomacy can be used as a driving force to resolve conflicts and will learn how to encourage the exchange of knowledge and values when working as an intermediary for other cultures. By focusing on these critical areas of study, students will be better equipped to pursue careers in a variety of fields, including diplomacy, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, business, research, and media.
