International Relations

At Lake Forest College, our students and faculty approach global issues like war and peace, development and underdevelopment, and imperialism and national self-determination with an interdisciplinary approach.

Through study in politics, history, economics, sociology, psychology, and foreign languages, our students prepare for positions in U.S. national government and the national governments of other countries, and with inter-governmental institutions, non-governmental institutions, and business enterprises.
