The Department of International Affairs was formed in 2001 when the School of Public & International Affairs was founded. Formerly, the department had been part of the larger Political Science department in Franklin College of Arts and Sciences. We currently offer a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Affairs, two master’s degrees (Master of International Policy and a Master of Arts in Political Science and International Affairs), and a Ph.D. in Political Science and International Affairs.
We currently have 24 tenured and tenure-track faculty and lecturers in the department that specialize in a wide array of topics, including international conflict, human rights, political institutions, extremism, political economy, and the environment. Many of our faculty have won prestigious teaching awards at the school and university levels. Our faculty are also world-renowned researchers, often winning research awards and external grants and serving in editorial positions at top peer-reviewed journals.
