  • Course description

    As the global media focuses even more intently on worldwide issues, this degree gives graduates the ability to understand and interpret the dynamics of the international system in the 21st century, and to become active players in an increasingly complex and interdependent world.

    Hult’s International Relations Major draws on the techniques and modes of thought of the social sciences, yet reaches out across a range of academic disciplines. It includes elements of Political Science, Economics, Sociology, History, and a number of other disciplines in seeking to understand and explain contemporary world affairs. Beyond the core courses of this degree, students may choose any of the ten Hult concentrations, although electives are typically drawn from Conflict & Security, Global Governance, International Economics, and Public Policy.
