International Affairs programs provide students with a broad educational foundation in international relations theory, policy analysis, oral and written communications skills, macro and micro-economics, management, and/or quantitative methods/statistics.
Beyond this general foundation of knowledge students specialize or concentrate in either functional subjects, such as international conflict resolution, international trade and finance, environmental issues, and foreign policy, or in regional areas such as Africa, Asia, the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Russia/Central Eurasia.
