World Politics and International Relations

The study of world politics at U-M cuts across many areas of study, including formal and game theoretic models of human behavior, macroeconomic policy and international institutions and the quantitative study of conflict.  Graduate and undergraduate courses range widely across the theories of the study of international politics, covering international organizations, open conflict, the domestic politics of foreign relations, foreign economic policies and law, and peace and security affairs.  The university's commitment to interdisciplinary study supports strong creative relationships between students in the department and faculty in other departments throughout the institution, as well.
