What is International Relations?

According to the University of Arkansas, "It is the mission of the Fulbright College Program in International Studies to live up to that charge. International Studies encompasses exploration of the world and its peoples, including its politics, economics, cultures, societies, and environment. It utilizes such varied subjects as international security, international economics, foreign relations, history, political science, geography, sociology, anthropology, and foreign languages and draws on the resources and expertise of many academic departments across campus. Students in International Studies are strongly encouraged to participate in study abroad as part of their degree program. With around 300 majors, the International Studies Program proudly takes its place at the heart of Fulbright College, serving as a vital component in the fulfillment of Senator Fulbright's vision."
