Theory and Practice Are Combined for a Holistic Learning Experience

An International Affairs minor provides a holistic learning experience that combines theory with practice. The theoretical component brings valuable historical context and structure to contemporary world politics, providing a profound understanding of the current state of international affairs and political science. Though theory is an essential part of your learning, the traditional instruction model, which typically prioritizes theory alone, has limitations regarding real workplace applications. The International Affairs minor, like our other academic programs, features a dynamic learning environment that stimulates students’ critical thinking skills. This proves to be valuable in real workplace situations.
