Welcome to International Relations -- POL 201

Take this class to learn more about the world!!

world according to US

In International Relations, we explore the international system and discuss many current issues facing the world today, including terrorism, Russian-US relations and global warming.

This course is offered in the Fall of 2014 as a "hybrid" class.

A hybrid class is a combination of online and on-campus classes. In this class, you will review lectures and take quizzes online, but we will have weekly discussion sessions.  In those sessions, I will also answer questions you might have about the material and the study guide.
