International Politics

A minor in International Politics will deepen and expand a student's knowledge of the discipline. In these courses, students will develop a greater understanding of world politics by examining current and historical events and issues in the field. Students will learn how international actors—states, inter-governmental and non-governmental organizations—interact with each other and/or create institutions for cooperation in order to maximize power and realize their ideals. The minor provides students with major theoretical approaches to critically analyze the development of the global polity, a knowledge base well-suited to all majors.
