The International Affairs program (INIA) is designed for students who are interested in diplomacy, international affairs, international business, and international community service. It offers a solid foundation in economics and political science, and supplemental work in history, foreign languages and cultures. Its graduates work for internationally oriented government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and international business and media organizations; attend post-graduate studies in law, business, and political science; and/or do international community service. Faculty members affiliated with the international affairs program are teacher-scholars who have lived and worked in other cultures.
In their first and second years, INIA Students take introductory courses in history, economics, political science and statistics, along with the core curriculum courses required by their respective college. While completing these, and after consulting with their faculty advisors, they choose a concentration for their electives, complete the required core courses, and finish by taking an active role in an interdisciplinary capstone seminar on a theme of current relevance.
