The International Relations program at Wooster provides students with an interdisciplinary understanding of the behaviors of governments, international and sub-national groups, and multinational corporations. The International Relations curriculum draws from diverse perspectives in economics, political science, and history to best understand the ways in which these actors relate in today's international system. In order to develop a more intimate knowledge of regions and interests, International Relations students are required to study abroad for at least one semester. This intimate knowledge results in IS topics such as a study of nationalist mobilization through football in three of Spain's autonomous communities, a panel data analysis of domestic terrorism between 1997 and 2008, and an analysis of the effects of decolonization on the Democratic Republic of Somalia.
International Relations is located in Kauke Hall.
