  • Undergraduate Studies

    The international system has grown in complexity since the end of the Cold War, and international issues and events impinge increasingly on our daily lives. Modern communications bring contemporary problems instantly to our attention. No state, and no people, can be isolated from the world events or unaffected by issues involving foreign policy and conflict, international trade, or economic developments in countries far from our borders. To gain an understanding of these issues is rewarding in itself, and necessary for the informed citizen. It also opens the way to a variety of careers, in government, international organizations, law, business and non-profit institutions, and academia.

    The International Relations Undergraduate Program, which is housed in the Maxwell School at Syracuse University, is multi-disciplinary and includes a wide variety of fields of study, including primarily the social science disciplines of Anthropology, Economics, Geography, History, Political Science, and Sociology, as well as recognizing that cultural studies such as language, literature, and religion are equally important for understanding other peoples and societies.

    This broad approach enables you to design your major program around your individual interests and career aspirations. Working with Professor Francine D'Amico, Director of Undergraduate Studies, Professor Terrie Northrup, Academic Advisor and minors coordinator, and Amy Kennedy, Academic Advisor, you choose from a variety of topical approaches to the subject -- political, economic, or intercultural -- and concentrate on a geographic region of particular interest -- Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America & the Caribbean, or the Middle East-North Africa (MENA).

    You are urged to take advantage of the study abroad opportunities offered by SU Abroad and the Maxwell-Washington International Relations Semester, and to participate in the frequent lectures and other events which take place on campus.
