International Relations

Changing the world should start first with understanding it

While many of us want to make a difference in the world, we may not even know where to start. The Indiana Wesleyan University International Relations (IR) major is a great place to begin comprehending the complexity of global politics, diversity in the domestic politics of foreign countries, and issues of concern for the world community. IR also aids you in confronting the prospects for exercising Christian influence and promoting change. Complete your journey understanding the world, prepared to make an impact at home or abroad.

Students who complete this program develop a theoretical and practical understanding of global politics and contemporary international affairs. Graduates are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills for professional careers in government agencies, international organizations, domestic and international non-governmental organizations, and diplomacy. Students completing this program will also be prepared to pursue teaching, research and graduate studies in international relations, and global public policy.

Students may also choose to minor in International Relations as a supplement to another IWU major as they globalize their studies.

Those majoring in International Relations may consider complementing their preparation with another major or minor in Business Administration, Communication Studies, Economics, History, Intercultural Studies, International and Community Development, Political Science, Philosophy and Theology, TESOL, or Writing.
