Advanced Studies in International Relations

This course provides students with a critical, in-depth assessment of a distinct and specialized area of international affairs-for example, the impact of multinational corporations, or approaches to international conflict resolution. It is designed for students in the International Relations track who have already completed the required six core courses in the track, and it builds on the body of knowledge so acquired. Structured as an intensive seminar, the course includes: study of the relevant literature on the topic, including a critical review of journals; review of the theoretical debates; participation in coordinated, team-research projects designed to analyze all the major aspects of the topic and share the results through systematic presentations.
