Explore the foundations for building a more peaceful world

From the food we eat to the products we use to the news we watch, we are part of an international community. Military, political, economic, and humanitarian struggles across the globe—once so distant—now demand our urgent attention.

In this program, you'll develop an understanding of international relations and use that framework to evaluate current events. You'll also examine the assumptions about human nature, equality, justice, and politics that determine how we explain international issues.

You'll consider war, terrorism, and security; poverty, health care, and human rights; the globalization of trade and investment; and the effect of culture on international relations.

By the end of three weeks, you'll gain a great foundation for future study and travel, for a career in government or business in the U.S. or abroad, and for life as a more responsible and informed global citizen.
