PSCI 201 - Intro to Int'l Relations (3)


Making sense of contemporary world affairs involves understanding the history of int'l relations (IR). The primary tool for examining the broader patterns in IR will be the three major theories of IR: Realism, Liberalism, and Neo-Marxism. Through these lenses, this course will examine the defining events of the 20th Century including World War I, the League of Nations, World War II, the UN, and the Cold War together with the contemporary phenomena of globalization, climate change, the rise of the BRICSs, and modern int'l warfare/terrorism.
