The Hub and your Major
Like all other schools at BU, Pardee School students are required to complete 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. Remaining BU Hub requirements will be satisfied by selecting from a wide range of available courses outside the major or, in some cases, cocurricular experiences.

Regional Studies Majors:
Regional Studies majors may also earn Hub units through courses in their majors, applicable Hub units will be listed on the course lists for Asian Studies, European Studies, Latin American Studies and Middle East and North African Studies released each semester.
