International Relations – International Studies

International relations can be defined as “an interdisciplinary undergraduate major that combines political science, economics, history, foreign languages, and other fields” to “give students the knowledge and skills to understand relations between nations, as well as the internal workings of other countries and the role of nongovernmental actors in world affairs,” as stated by Stanford University Program in International Relations. Many people working as diplomats, political analysts, and intelligence specialists have backgrounds in international relations.
