International Relations

Who's who in the Middle East? What does a Taiwanese presidential election or Japanese constitutional shift mean for U.S.-China relations? How do governments manage conflict in a world where ethnic and religious tension, economic change, and territorial demands threaten their very existence?  Exploring International Relations will provide students with skills to analyze the myriad questions that emerge daily in our fast-paced global environment. In this FIGS, we will explore international relations theories, discuss case studies, debate current events, learn about academic and professional opportunities, and meet faculty and students from a range of departments.
