POLS 4508 - Theories on International Relations

3 Credit Hours
Description: The purpose of this course is to provide advanced coverage of the field of International Relations Theory. Course readings will focus on original theoretical and empirical works. As such, students will be exposed to classic studies that espouse the central tenets of IR theory. To show how theories have changed over time, attention will also be given to current works and variants of IR theory. Armed with the theoretical foundation, we will then cover some of the major issues of contention within the field of IR including morality, international conflict, and the pursuit of peace.
