Request Information


CAS Students in class Our international affairs majors and minors are curious about the world around them, are deeply committed to the cause of social justice and are respectful of all peoples and cultures.

Our students work with faculty from such varied disciplines as business, communication, economics, gender studies, geography, history, languages, political science and sociology as they study the most current global issues in a unique setting: Washington, D.C., a center of global policy making and advocacy. Our students are prepared to become active global citizens and to take on important roles in an increasingly interconnected world.

Our international affairs students develop fundamental skills in written and oral communication, critical reasoning, and research methodology, which are essential in any profession.

Faculty representing diverse disciplines in the College of Arts and Sciences collaborate with and contribute to the International Affairs program.
