Located academically in the Department of Social Sciences in the College of Arts and Sciences, the BA in International Relations examines the nature of the global economy, communications, politics, and cultures; the consequences of the increasing environmental interdependence among regions of the world; and the unfolding of a variety of other cross border issues. The BA in International Relations aims to provide its graduates with the conceptual and substantive tools necessary to function more advantageously and effectively in a "shrinking " world; the global village concept. The degree consists of courses from many academic disciplines such as government, economics, business, history, and sociology, and contains an SSU-first-ever foreign language requirement. This degree also places SSU in an exclusive group of four-year colleges and universities in the United States that offer this major and is listed by US News and World Report in the top 200 US best colleges offering this degree.
