International Relations
GOVT 155
Spring 2025
Section: 01  

Why do states go to war with each other? How do we solve global problems? How do we govern the global economy? To equip students to answer these questions, this course introduces students to an analytical framework emphasizing the role of political interests, strategic interactions, and international institutions. Students will use this framework to understand current events and to critically analyze theories and concepts that have been used to explain world politics. Students will also consider critical perspectives on international relations, such as the role of colonialism in shaping the global order.
