Course Outcomes

Students completing this course will be able to gain an understanding of current international relations theory (including substantive fields such as conflict and cooperation, international institutions, and international economics), and they will be introduced to the application of the scientific process to study politics. Further, students will have the opportunity to develop logic and analytic reasoning skills through the careful study of existing theories and hypotheses. Finally, students will learn about several different types of careers open to those interested in the study of international relations, and practice the communication skills (both written and oral) used in those professions.
