INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the International Relations Program. This handbook lays out the requirements for the International Relations major. Students should consult the UC Davis General Catalog for the University and College requirements for graduation (General Education, L&S Area/Breadth, English Composition, total units, upper division units, etc.).

Academic advising for students majoring in International Relations and those interested in learning more about the major is available by appointment only. Appointments can be made at https://appointments.ucdavis.edu/. There are reference materials available on bulletin boards, in the library (Room 462 Kerr Hall), and from the IR peer advisor in Room 462 Kerr Hall. All students should consult with Academic Advisor Katy Pattison in Room 464 Kerr Hall and are welcome to talk with the Academic Peer Advisor in Room 461.

Languages other than those listed in this handbook may satisfy the major’s language requirement with the written permission of program staff; see an academic advisor for details.

Senior students with a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or better in courses counted toward the major are eligible to participate in the major’s Honors Seminar, a two-quarter sequence offered in the spring of a student's junior year and the fall of a student's senior year. Honors will be awarded upon attainment of a qualifying grade point average alone; the qualifying GPA is recalculated annually after winter quarter (see the General Catalog or consult with the College of Letters and Science for more information about Honors). Only students who participate in the Honors Seminar and qualify for Honors are eligible to receive High or Highest Honors at graduation. More detailed information about the IR Honors Seminar is available in the IR Program suite and on the IR web site, http://intlrel.ucdavis.edu/.

The International Relations Student Association, Model United Nations, and other campus international organizations are available for interested students. Those wishing to receive notification of IR-related events, meetings, lectures, internships, and other notices may subscribe to the IR e-mail list; see the advising staff or visit the IR web site for details about how to subscribe.

OPTIONS

Honors Graduating senior students who have a GPA of 3.5 or higher in courses counted toward the IR major are invited to enroll in a two-quarter Honors Seminar (IRE 194H A and B), offered in the fall and winter of a student's senior year. The seminar will culminate in production of a major research project. The seminar and thesis are minimum qualifications for consideration for High or Highest honors at graduation.

Education Abroad Program The University of California has programs for study abroad in many different countries to suit the needs of all students. Quarter, semester, year-long, and summer programs are available. All International Relations majors are strongly encouraged to participate in these programs; those who choose Track IV are required to study or do an internship abroad for a minimum of one quarter (ten weeks).

Beginning in the freshman year, students planning to study abroad should consult regularly with a major advisor to ensure that they meet program requirements without delaying their graduation.

Upon return to Davis, courses taken abroad on EAP may be applied to the major with the specific approval of an appropriate faculty member of the International Relations Program Committee. Study abroad through programs other than UC EAP is regarded as transfer credit and is subject to acceptance by the UCD Undergraduate Admissions/Registrar’s Office, as well as by IR faculty, for application to the major. Early consultation with an advisor is essential. Non-UC programs should be planned for the junior year or earlier because of specific College of Letters and Science residence requirements. Consult a counselor in the Letters and Science Dean’s Office and/or the Undergraduate Admissions Office for more specific information regarding non-UC programs, issues of residency, and arranging for transfer credit.

Internships Internships enable the student to assess work skills, become familiar with possible future occupations or professions, and gain practical experience toward finding a job after graduation.

The UCD Internship and Career Center coordinates placement of students into a wide range of internships, including part- or full-time, local, in the Bay Area, in southern California, or in Washington, D.C. (the Washington Center). Advanced students may qualify for a small number of internships in foreign countries.

The International Relations Program does not offer or arrange internships but may grant academic credit for some internships, up to a maximum of 12 units. Only those internships that are related to international relations may be given credit as IRE 192. Internship credit will not fulfill any major requirements. To apply for academic credit for IRE 192, students must have upper division standing (90 units or more). The IR Program does not grant credit for lower division internships (92s). Students interested in doing internships for academic credit should see Katy Pattison, Room 464 Kerr Hall.

TRACK DESCRIPTIONS

TRACK 1: WORLD TRADE AND DEVELOPMENT
The World Trade and Development track emphasizes contemporary international economic relations and global patterns of development. Students can choose from one of two foci in this track. A focus on the advanced industrialized countries builds on extensive coursework in economics to introduce students to theories of international trade and finance, and the functioning of the global political economy. A focus on the developing regions examines relations between Western and non-Western countries, paying particular attention to the inequalities of power and wealth separating the two, and providing insight into the origins of these inequalities and their impact on developing states and societies. The track is designed to give all students exposure to economic relations within and between industrialized and developing countries.

TRACK 2: PEACE AND SECURITY
The Peace and Security track focuses on political and security relationships in international relations, emphasizing national governments and state-to-state interactions. It examines traditional international security questions of war and peace, alliances and diplomacy, and the development and deployment of military capabilities. Students develop an understanding of the political, economic, social, and military factors that lead to international conflict and how cooperation can develop.

TRACK 3: GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT, HEALTH, AND NATURAL RESOURCES
This track is designed to familiarize students with major new sources of interdependence in the international system and to issues of rising importance for members of the global community. Students learn about global threats to the natural environment and biodiversity, the causes and consequences of natural resource conflicts, how rising human demands on the environment due to population growth affect world health, and the nature of worldwide epidemics. Students will also learn how to manage these problems nationally and internationally.

TRACK 4: PEOPLES AND NATIONALITIES
One way of grasping the nature of international relations is to focus on the interactions of governments pursuing their conception of the national interest. Another is to cast our gaze at the societies involved, inquiring how the needs and preferences exhibited at the societies’ bases determine how they will relate to each other. This track focuses on the social and cultural foundations of national development and international relations. The track’s required quarter (or more) of study or work abroad gives students first-hand experience of these social and cultural foundations in a non-US society.
