International Affairs

Explore the International affairs program

The most pressing matters of our time — migration, climate change, violent conflict, human rights, economic globalization, epidemics — transcend national boundaries and require a global response. The International Affairs (IA) program at UNH equips students from any of the five colleges to take on these global challenges through rigorous, interdisciplinary coursework, extensive second language study and cultural immersion in another country. Students can combine the IA dual major or minor with any other major on campus and graduate as critically minded and responsible global citizens ready to contribute meaningfully to the world in a range of fields.
