International Relations at the Schar School of Policy and Government
International relations is an interdisciplinary field that combines political, economic, historical, and social spheres to analyze global linkages. The Schar School of Policy and Government’s programs are led by faculty whose expertise is drawn from government, international organizations, and the private sector.
With the Schar School’s location in the Washington, D.C. area, students gain unparalleled access to world-renowned organizations and think tanks that provide research and engage in advocacy in issues of public policy, foreign affairs, diplomacy, and international development. Schar School students regularly land internships, fellowships, and job offers in Washington, D.C. and New York – two of the U.S. cities with the highest concentration of think tanks (Washington, D.C. alone boasts more than 400 think tanks).
