Living in a world of swift transformation, we’re not content to simply watch as daily news reports inundate us with scenes of conflict and change from around the globe. Our classes will help you see how the field of international and comparative politics functions as a systematic examination of political institutions, processes, and actions, where you will investigate pressing contemporary questions like what factors make a transition to democracy endure? Why do people and groups resort to terrorism and other forms of political violence? How do different countries react when faced with crisis, and what are the consequences for other nations? AUP’s strategic location lends itself to creating partnerships with world-renowned universities and prestigious international institutions. Our interdisciplinary and interactive learning approach,which will expose you to a sophisticated examination of the allocation of ideas and resources across nations and societies, will enable you to acquire the knowledge you’ll need today to take your place as a leader of tomorrow.
