Political Science & International Relations

Program Information
This program is designed to give our students strong theoretical foundations in Political Science and International Relations in combination with real world insights provided by our unique Faculty of “Scholars Practitioners” who provide the needed links between theory and the empirical world of “field experience”. This includes ample use of case studies that provide insights on how to properly use models, analytical tools, strategic planning, policy-making, diplomacy, international negotiations and more. Students also benefit from the specialized expertise of guest lecturers drawn from the rich Washington, DC environment. They include: think-tank experts, government officials, diplomats, trade organizations officials, multilateral organizations officials (World Bank, International Monetary Fund, Inter-American Development Bank), media and many others.
