The International Relations BA program at Webster Leiden is designed to prepare students for leadership and service in the international community. Students examine the great political powers, humanitarian issues, and the dynamics of the global community using contemporary American and European approaches.
Through our program, you are given the opportunity to explore, critique and understand the social, political and economic interactions of our contemporary globalized world.
Webster's undergraduate programs follow the Liberal Arts system, which is designed to provide students with a well-rounded education and a broad background for their future career. Along with our Global Citizenship Program, students will be able to combine areas within their major with electives in other fields, allowing them to gain knowledge in different areas. International Relations courses are taught by academics, political scientists, lawyers and ambassadors. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the study abroad possibilities within the Webster system and to pursue internship opportunities. The international nature of the faculty and the student body enriches this academic experience. Students experience international relationships firsthand on campus.
