Minor in International Relations
International Relations benefits students who are going on to graduate work in International Relations or Government. This minor offers a really great bridge between Government students and International Studies students who wish to work in some kind of international organization, embassy, or for an applicable NGO in the future.
The International Relations Minor goes well with a Government Major, Legal Studies Major, or an International Studies Major. Each of these majors provides a great background into the IR minor which will help students understand more about the bridge between international items and government items.
Students pursuing this minor open themselves up to pursuing hundreds of different career options in many different countries. The development of understanding and appreciation for the diversity of human culture with that connection to their government is essential to those who want to work inside a governmental organization, an NGO or a non-profit organization someday.
