The Department of Government and International Affairs offers a wide range of courses covering the areas of American politics, law, comparative political systems, foreign policy, international relations, and political theory. In addition, the department awards credit for off-campus internships in law, politics, and public service. Our aim is to develop in students a questioning spirit and informed perspective that will enable them to understand and interpret political affairs. Government or International Affairs provide superb preparation for those who are planning careers in law; in government service at the local, state, national, or international levels; and in journalism, business, or non-profits.

A student who elects the major in international affairs will plan, with the advisor, a program of study that may comprise a selected area or areas or a special topic of international significance.
