International Relations Major

What is International Relations?

International relations is an interdisciplinary study that focuses on government and foreign affairs, economics and history.

 

What makes Walsh's International Relations program unique?

  • Three Academic Disciplines. Our major takes a three-pronged approach and focuses on government and foreign affairs, economics and history.
  • Foreign Language Component. Students are required to take a foreign language and reach a level of fluency in the spoken form of that language.
  • Global Learning Experience. The international relations major offers students participation in a global learning experience. Students can either study at Walsh's campus near Rome, Italy or another international destination through our Office of Global Learning.

In addition, students have the option to enroll in Walsh's new 4+1 Program for non-business majors who would like to supplement their bachelor's degree with an MBA. Through the program, students simultaneously earn undergraduate and graduate credit for Walsh's MBA Prep Series courses, saving both time and money as students pursue their advanced degree. 

Generally speaking, what courses will I need to take?

In addition to a core group of liberal arts classes, International Relations majors must take a core group of classes in our three academic disciplines: history, government and foreign affairs and economics.
