The international relations and global studies (IRG) major prepares students to make effective decisions as citizens of an interconnected world; encourages global perspectives; and increases students' opportunities to study other cultures in relation to their own. This interdisciplinary major focuses on relationships and tensions between cultures or regions by linking issues, approaches, contexts, and sources of knowledge in new ways. IRG majors learn to think critically about key issues in the field and develop aptitude in the areas of political awareness, economic understanding, cultural competency, international cooperation and problem solving, and global citizenship.
