International Studies: Diplomacy + Security

A concentration in diplomacy and security gives students the opportunity to gain historic and cultural perspectives on the politics of nations around the globe-and think analytically and critically about these influences on war, peace and everything in between. Students will get a thorough grounding in politics, history, economics and the art and science of statecraft and diplomacy, as well as develop a deep appreciation for cultures around the world. In the process, they will develop an understanding of how to engage and negotiate on the interstate and the transnational level.
