This course is designed to introduce students to the major actors, processes, problems, and issues in the arena of global politics. The focus of the course is on both theoretical and empirical knowledge that has accumulated for the academic study of the interactions of international actors. We will conduct a broad overview of the puzzles on which IR scholarship focuses and the theoretical approaches to understanding contemporary debates. Lectures will cover issues at both a theoretical level and with empirical examples and current events. Students will become familiar with the contending theories and approaches in the study of IR, will come to understand the conceptual bases of rigorous social science, and will assimilate knowledge of historical and current events in the process. This course is an option in the "Societal and Cultural Knowledge" section of the core curriculum.
