International relations is one of two tracks in the political science department. Students take courses in the political science curriculum, which covers comparative institutions and regimes, American politics, international relations, and political theory and philosophy. They also study diplomatic history and political economy. Additional work in interdisciplinary programs such as American studies and environmental and technology studies is encouraged, as is participation in off-campus study. Options include seminars in Washington, D.C., Beijing, and Maastricht, the Netherlands.
