The International Relations Fellows program seeks to instill in its participants the desire and skills necessary to make the world a more peaceful and just place. An understanding of the world beyond one’s own borders is fundamental to the preparation of useful and responsible citizens of a democracy. Accordingly, the Fellows will work to improve their understanding of the world and the role of the United States within it. In addition to the history and contemporary practice of world politics, the Fellows will also study related subjects such as international law and economics.
Extending their exploration beyond the classroom, Fellows will travel internationally and will be exposed to different organizations and institutions, schools of thought, and peer groups. Fellows will investigate and communicate solutions to issues that interest them most with the aid of faculty and professional mentors. The end result will be the creation of a new generation of international leaders.
