International Relations Online Degrees

We offer respected degrees in international relations that are entirely online. The program blends academic theory and policy with the unique and insightful experience of its practitioner instructors. Many of our faculty hold leadership positions in the U.S. intelligence, homeland security and foreign relations communities, as well as government organizations. Students gain an informed perspective into the spheres of influence that are impacting diplomatic relationships and shaping the geopolitical powers of tomorrow. The international relations discipline goes beyond boundaries and closely examines the political theories, belief systems, cultures and the complex interrelationships between states, nongovernmental organizations, and multinational businesses.

These interdisciplinary online degrees provide students with the knowledge and critical skills that are necessary for professionals and individuals new to the field to apply in a variety of international policy and business endeavors. We continuously assess and align our international relations degrees to address the most pressing and relevant issues regarding international relations including diplomacy, foreign policy analysis, international organizations, and global development. In addition to attracting professionals interested in international relations careers such as planning and program officers and regional desk officers, these online degrees are versatile for students seeking a foundational degree in order to pursue other advanced degrees.
