Division Overview

The Social Science Division’s International Relations and Global Affairs (IRGA) Program is designed to prepare students for a broad range of careers in both the public and private sectors. It provides them with the requisite knowledge for living and working in an increasingly globalized world. It also helps them improve their critical thinking skills, problem-solving capabilities and communication arts, working in groups, working across cultures and leadership. During the course of their studies, students have ample opportunity to engage in applied research. They can also opt to obtain part of their degree credit from an internship program or pursue a double degree with one of our partner universities overseas.
