Explore this Program
The International Relations subfield focuses on the issues of international conflict, cooperation, peace, and security, as well as on the strategies and policies used by states, organizations, and individuals in the international arena.
We currently have seven faculty members who have diverse but complementary scholarly interests and pursue active research agendas in areas such as the causes of war, civil war, terrorism, foreign policy, alliances, weapons of mass destruction, the role of ideas, norms and identities in international security, international institutions and cooperation, and conflict management.
Students of International Relations will have the opportunity to learn about a variety of approaches to the study of international phenomena and benefit from working closely with our faculty.
