PO 1520 - Introduction to International Politics


This course provides an introduction to international politics, with a broad approach that looks at various national perspectives as well as the role of international organizations, alliances and non-governmental actors.  The course will explain the causes of war as well as current security problems. Students will discuss how the world has moved from traditional interstate relations to a globalized environment in which states, non-state actors, and international organizations interact.  They will develop a “toolkit” which they can use to understand international relations on issues such as trade, environment, human rights, and other topics.  Key international agreements and treaties on all of these issues will form the basis for discussion. Credits: 4
