The International Affairs Program is an interdisciplinary major for undergraduate students, as well as a venue for various community outreach projects. The program is intense, promotes a liberal arts perspective on undergraduate education, and prepares its graduates for advanced education and professional careers in an increasingly interdependent world. The program also serves as a central contact for activities related to international relations in the Northern Nevada Community.
Areas of study and the departments offering courses for International Affairs students include economics, geography, history, political science, foreign languages and cultures. Specialized options include:
- Latin America
- North America
- Diplomacy, Law, and Organization
- International Environmental Studies
- International Political Economy
While it is housed with the Department of Political Science, the International Affairs Program is interdisciplinary: courses are drawn from a variety of academic disciplines to provide students many perspectives on their area of study. This gives students flexibility in planning a curriculum that is suited to their particular interests and career goals. Students choose approved courses from a variety of departments and are encouraged to take advantage of internship and
study abroad opportunities.
