Welcome from our program coordinators!

  • Dear Students, Given these pandemic times, I’m writing this message from my home, of course. While it’s good to be home with my animals and family, I must acknowledge that I miss campus life deeply.

  • I write on behalf of our program—Women’s Studies. We greet you, not merely I. We .... welcome you, invite you in. We are glad you’re taking a peek, giving us a listen.

  • Welcome to International Relations! This is a major that takes you on a journey of reimagining your world. It is for those who want to make a difference on a global scale and who want to understand how global forces affect local outcomes.
