The international relations program at Saint Joseph’s University offers students a truly interdisciplinary course of study. Requiring foundational classes in economics, history and political science, the program creates a multidisciplinary perspective on regional and global issues. International relations majors often enhance the interdisciplinary nature of their studies by pursuing a minor in a foreign language, history, economics, political science, or Latin American, Asian or European studies. In addition, you can choose to spend a semester abroad, take a summer study tour or intern locally or in Washington, D.C.
As an international relations major, you will acquire valuable skills in communication and analysis, independent judgment, appreciation of different societies and cultures, and knowledge of world affairs and trends. The goal is to provide you with interesting courses and a well-designed curriculum that will help you develop the tools needed to succeed in your future. That may be in the corporate world, education, government service, the non-profit sector, law school or graduate school.
