INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS

International Relations (IR) is an interdisciplinary undergraduate major focusing on the changing political, economic and cultural relations within the international system of the modern era. The program explores how global, regional, and domestic factors influence relations between actors on the world stage. Students are equipped with both the foundational skills and specific knowledge necessary to analyze the choices and challenges that arise in this arena.

The international relations major involves studying world societies and the interactions between them. Students with a concentration in this subject area develop expertise in diplomacy and foreign policy.

Many colleges and universities offer students an interdisciplinary approach which often includes coursework in history, politics, economics, world languages, and geography, or some combination of those disciplines. You can earn a bachelor’s, master’s, or doctorate (Ph.D.) degree in international relations. Master’s and Ph.D. programs are usually more specialized than undergraduate ones.

Like other liberal arts degrees, a degree in this discipline will not give you entry into a specific occupation. It will, instead, provide you with a broad knowledge base that you can use to excel in a variety of career fields.

CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY

In this course, students will be exposed to the science and practice of Clinical Psychology. Students will learn about the clinical characteristics of many major classes of psychiatric disorders, and the scientifically validated treatments available for these conditions. This course is intended to provide information for those considering a career in clinical psychology, allowing those individuals to make informed choices regarding their future career choices.

For most people, their exposure to psychology comes mostly from popular books, magazines, and TV. The portrayal of psychology in the media has led to popular misconceptions about psychologists, and the types of work that they do. For example: Is Dr. Phil a good therapist? What does IQ measure, anyway? This course is designed to demystify psychotherapy, and introduce students to a scientific, theory-based, approach to Clinical Psychology. This class emphasizes critical thinking and is designed to help students to gain an understanding of the scientific strengths and limitations of various treatments for psychological disorders. We will discuss the three major activities of Clinical Psychologists (research, assessment, and psychotherapy) across their three most common work environments (university, medical school, and clinical settings). Additionally, we will discuss information relevant to those considering a career in psychology, allowing students to make informed decisions regarding their future career aspirations.
