International Relations

The International Relations program takes an interdisciplinary approach and includes courses offered by the departments of history, political science and economics. The program explores the enduring questions of the origins of war and the maintenance of peace, the nature and exercise of power within an international system, and the changing character of the actors (both state and non-state) who participate in the various levels of international decision making.
