PSC 150 - Approaches to International Relations (4 Cr.)

(formerly PSC 250) (GCR Social and Behavioral Sciences area)
This course is an introduction to theories and problems of international politics. This course introduces students to the political, economic, and social factors which come to shape the behavior of states and non-state actors on the international stage. The course begins by providing students a framework for understanding what theory is and how theories can be evaluated.  Students explore the major theoretical approaches taken in the study of international relations including but not limited to realism, liberalism, constructivism, economic structuralism and feminist theory. Through projects, simulations, and written assignments students connect theory to policy related to trade, cybersecurity, climate change, terrorism, armament, drone technology and natural resource use. Fall semester. Baqueiro.
