Majors & Minors

The Department offers programs a major and minor in Politics and a major in International Relations.

Our Politics program builds on the conceptual, methodological, and theoretical frameworks of Political Science while requiring students to take complementary coursework outside of the major. International Relations is an interdisciplinary major that includes foundational courses from a range of programs—including Politics, Economics, and World Languages and Cultures—and upper-level electives from a wide range of programs. This combination of in-depth disciplinary training with broad multidisciplinary inquiry helps fulfill Drake’s mission of producing informed and engaged citizens while providing students with skills and training to help them succeed in a job, in graduate school or in a professional school as well as in careers in politics or international affairs.

In addition, members of our department are active in the interdisciplinary Law, Politics and Society (LPS) major and the Environmental Science and Policy (ENSP) major.
