To study international relations is to learn how the world works. The field of international relations is broadly interdisciplinary: undergraduates studying international relations choose from a wide range of courses in international relations, history, economics, political science, anthropology, sociology, and religion, among other disciplines. In a globalizing world, the study of international relations provides a portal for entry into a variety of career fields or for further graduate or professional training. International Relations offers a major of 14 courses and a minor of 8 courses including the prerequisite courses. A wide variety of Boston University study abroad programs also work with both the major and minor.
