International Relations

The world is a big place, but it’s also smaller than we think. A major in international relations raises awareness and appreciation of the transnational and international links among countries, economies, and populations. As an international relations major at Wheaton, you’ll develop competency in a modern language and embark in real-world learning through internships, service work, or study abroad. These rich experiences coupled with coursework in political science, economics, history, and anthropology lead to exciting careers in diplomacy, foreign service, advocacy, and multinational business.




100% of International Relations majors from the past five years have found employment, attended graduate school or achieved a fellowship or service opportunity within six months of graduation *
