The International Affairs major is an academically rigorous program that thoroughly prepares students for careers in all aspects of the international field. The mission of the program is to provide students with an understanding of topics that are both historical and current in order to gain perspective on the forces that shape the world around us.
The International Affairs Program offers a B.A. in international affairs with regional analysis in: Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, Middle East, or Russia. We also offer minors in international affairs and in Middle East studies.
Students who graduate with their B.A. in international affairs go on to work in a variety of fields — non-profit organizations, NGOs, positions in the government, banks, media and communications, research, public relations, education, corporate companies, and many others. IAF alumni currently hold positions in the U.S. Government, Peace Corps, United Nations, Amnesty International, the Smithsonian, Mass General Hospital, and Harvard University.
