The Hub and your Major
Like all other schools at BU, Pardee School students are required to complete the general education requirements of the BU Hub, the BU-wide general education program. Students majoring in International Relations will ordinarily, through coursework in the major, satisfy BU Hub requirements in Diversity, Civic Engagement, and Global Citizenship, as well as some requirements in Philosophical, Aesthetic and Historical Interpretation, Scientific and Social Inquiry, Communication, and the Intellectual Toolkit. The remaining BU Hub requirements will be satisfied by selecting from a wide range of available courses outside the major or, in some cases, co-curricular experiences.
To learn more about Hub requirements and how the Hub works, please visit the Hub’s website.
Click on the link below, to learn more about how courses in your International Relations major will help you fulfill Hub requirements. Be sure to talk with your Academic Advisor about plans for earning Hub units that may not be fulfilled through your major.
International Relations Courses in the HUB
Regional Studies Majors:

NOTE: If a course is not on the current course list, but is on the StudentLink, please discuss it with your advisor when you meet for pre-registration.
