Foundations of International Relations

On CampusAge Range 11, 12, 13

Welcome to the complex stage of international relations where the interaction of nations-states, organizations, and individuals shape the global world we live in. In this course we will examine key concepts, theories, and dynamics that govern international relations, politics, and diplomacy. We will examine historical and modern-day relationships between the US and the rest of the world through case studies and analysis of current events, including de-stabilization in the Ukraine and Middle East. Students will learn about international organizations and the roles they play in global alliances and international trade. This course will analyze foreign policy, compare global political systems, and the impact of international terrorism in a post-Cold War world. Through a mixture of teaching, multimedia, and stimulating discussions, students will feel confident in their perspective of current day international relations.
