The International Relations Concentration

offers a rigorous undergraduate degree that combines student choice with cross-disciplinary training in international and comparative perspective. The IR program emphasizes: a solid grounding in the methods of analysis used in the social sciences and humanities to help students think critically about international phenomena, the exploration of the empirical and the normative domains of the subject, and flexibility to allow students to customize their IR concentration.
