4 Fantastic Degrees for Students Interested in International Relations (4557 hits)

If you're interested in seeing the world and crossing cultural borders, a career in international relations may be for you. There are several degrees that can help you make your way in this exciting field, and the four listed below are all fantastic choices.

International Studies

International studies in the catch-all major for students who are interested in working with organizations that cross international lines. These degrees often require students to have strong skills in both communication and at least one foreign language, and are often paired with culturally-relevant language degrees. Students who major in international studies are more likely to know with which nations they are likely to want to work and can plan their semesters abroad accordingly.

Diplomacy

A master's in diplomacy is the end goal for many students who want to be a part of the international diplomatic community. These degree programs not only provide the necessary training for working in government programs, but help students find valuable work experience that will give them a real taste for their future careers. A degree in diplomacy can be used in many different areas. Most of these programs are highly competitive, and graduates rarely tend to lack for work.

Law

Degrees in international law are incredibly helpful for those who want to stride across the world stage. While a focus in international relations while in law school can be helpful, an LLM that focuses on international law can help would-be international lawyers stand out above their peers. A law degree with a specialization in international law can be difficult to obtain, but top-tier international lawyers are always in high demand.

Finance

Money makes the world go 'round, and those with an interest in international finance can make waves in the world of international relations. A good undergraduate degree in accounting or business can be a stepping stone to a MBA or an International Finance degree. These degrees are best for those who want to get a handle on the business side of how the world works. International finance is a difficult world to break into, but it's also one that is very rewarding.

If you are a student who is interested in international relations, you can choose a degree that fits your own strengths. Whether you are interested in trade, diplomacy, law or business, there's a program that can make use of your particular skills. All of these programs tend to be demanding, but they wind up giving their students the skills they need to compete on an international stage.
