Public Affairs Tri-subject.
Meet the Gang! (Who takes these majors?)
The interdisciplinary majors in the area of public and international affairs embrace the arts, the humanities, the social sciences and more. Each major is dedicated to the proposition that civic life is enhanced by studies that cross traditional subject boundaries and international borders.
Responding to the increasing integration of global transport, communications, politics, economics and culture, the European Studies major is designed to show the student the network of intellectual connections among disciplines relevant to European Studies. In this major the courses that are required generally explore connections among nations rather than within one nation, and tend to exclude studies of domestic issues in the United States.
A major in International Studies is designed to provide the student with a basic understanding of the historical background of the contemporary international system, the economic and political forces which affect the relations of nations and other international factors. The major requires some courses in non-western history and selections from the global cluster.
The Public Affairs Tri-subject Major is designed to provide a foundation for responsible participation in American and global public affairs and to ilustrate the network of intellectual connections among disciplines one of which must be Political Science.
