Major program: To qualify for the Certificate in International Relations a student must fulfill three kinds of requirements:
Students who wish to earn the Certificate should finish the first two parts of the requirements – Foreign Language and Introductory Courses – before junior year, if possible. Students are urged to study abroad, preferably in a non-English-speaking country so that they can improve their language skills. Internships in foreign policy fields (with international organizations, government agencies, multinational corporations, or nonprofit organizations) are encouraged, but may not count for credit in some departments. A statistics course in economics, government, or sociology is strongly recommended but not required.
Sample Courses: Vulnerability, Development and Social Protection in Latin America; Public Opinion and Foreign Policy; Modern Europe; Diasporas, Transnationalism and Globalization; European Imperialism and the Third World II; Security in Africa
