The problems and threats facing the world today are complex. Navigating the international political arena and creating sustainable solutions require both a nuanced and multi-faceted approach. Thus, the International Relations: Politics and History (IRPH) program teaches students concepts and methods from a number of fields, including political science, history, law, and philosophy. The overall aim is twofold: first, to equip students with the theoretical knowledge and analytical skills required to explore the historical emergence of, and remedies for, pressing global ills. And, second, to prepare our students so they can succeed either on the job market or in graduate school. Upon graduating, about 60% of our students enter prestigious graduate schools, such as Oxford, Cambridge, London School of Economics (LSE), Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Georgetown, and Sciences Po. About 40% of our graduates opt for the job market and secure positions in traditional international relations fields, public policy, or development work as well as in the business sector, consulting, and in many other areas. The success of our students attests to the excellence of the IRPH program, which is also confirmed by the program's outstanding rankings from the Centre for Higher Education (CHE).
The IRPH program provides students with the foundations for a variety of careers. By equipping them with an in-depth understanding of international relations and history, from both empirical and theoretical perspectives, they gain the knowledge and the analytical tools required for fields like politics and diplomacy, public policy and administration, communications and journalism.
