BS Political Science, International Politics Concentration

International politics studies the political interactions and relationships among two or more transnational actors on the global stage, and the structure and context of the current globalized international system within which these interactions and relationships occur. Historically, states have been the dominant transnational actors in the world, but in the twenty-first century these actors increasingly include non-state entities such as international governmental organizations, international non-governmental organizations, multi-national corporations, and transnational religious, ethnic, ideological, social, professional or criminal groups and movements.
