Students in Ireland for International Relations Minor

International Relations


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.

By approaching ancient Egypt in this way, students will be challenged to better understand the multifaceted aspects of culture and how different components impact and shape each other.
