This fall, Union College began offering a bachelor of arts degree in international relations, a program designed to prepare students for careers requiring global perspectives within government service, business and law.

The new program is a revamping of Union’s former international studies degree with a number of new classes developed by new assistant professor of history Christopher Banks. Some of the new courses include The Modern Middle East: From 1800 to the Present; Global Environment; and The Political Economy of International Labor. Students will also study regional and thematic courses on Russia, India, Latin America, the Caribbean, China and the U.S. War on Terror.
