International Relations Minor

Wherever the World Takes You

Designed for students interested in the political, economic, and ideological relationships between nations, the International Relations minor complements a variety of majors, such as Business, Christian Ministries, and Multimedia Journalism. This minor will cover a broad spectrum of historical and global ideas, from liberty and equality to specific political climates.

International Relations classes dig into fascinating and relevant topics like world politics, international political economy, global governance, and other theories of international relations. Some courses zero-in on specific areas of the world—one class dissects the modern Middle East, while another examines the inner workings of American foreign policy.

A History of Excellence

Covering everything from philosophy and economics to history and international studies, the History, Global & Political Studies department helps students challenge assumptions, make connections, and apply historical knowledge to contemporary current issues.

The wide variety of disciplines and majors represented in the department are grounded in research, analysis, critical thinking, and truth seeking. Through these values—as well as through practical learning in discussions, case studies, lectures, and simulations—students develop fresh insights and perspectives that join textbook knowledge with global realities and a Christian worldview.

Not only are the History, Global & Political Science professors serious about what they teach, they’re serious about incorporating their own personalities in the classroom and encouraging their students to do the same. The faculty create a family atmosphere—hosting movie nights, meals, and badminton tournaments while prompting their students to join in career development opportunities like research groups, the American Studies Program, and Taylor’s chapter of the American Enterprise Institute Council.
