How will the courses apply to my degree?:

The courses offered to the Global Politics Fellows are especially applicable to the Global Governance and International Development concentrations within a Global Affairs major; however, students considering other concentrations are also encouraged to apply.  Please contact your academic advisor regarding potential course substitutions for your degree requirements.

Some courses may apply to various concentrations (Comparative Politics, International Relations, or Law, Philosophy and Governance) within the Government and International Politics Major.  It is possible to complete 9 of the 12 credits for a concentration in one semester! 

One course and 3 credits of GOVT internship can also be applied to a minor in International/Comparative Studies, International Security, or Legal Studies
