Department of International Relations

Department Chair: Dr. Dmytro Roman Kulchitsky

The International Relations program seeks to educate students through a traditional liberal arts and interdisciplinary curriculum. The program is committed to teaching skills in critical and perspectival thinking, problem solving, communication, research, teamwork, and communication technology.

The program is structured with a set of general core course requirements, which students should complete by the beginning of their junior year. Additionally, students take courses in three of the IR fields in which the student chooses to concentrate (Diplomacy and Conflict Resolution, International Law and Organizations, International Political Economy, International Relations and History). Finally, in consultation with their advisor, students select courses as International Relations Electives.

The program is ideal for those who want to pursue careers in diplomacy, media, local and national government, and international and non-governmental organizations. It is also an excellent stepping-stone toward graduate programs in international relations, history, political science, public administration, law, and business. It is strongly recommended that a student majoring in International Relations also minor in History or Arabic.

The Department of International Relations at AUK offers undergraduate students a course of study that focuses on diplomacy, conflict resolution, history, international law and political economy. The curriculum is interdisciplinary in approach and is designed to provide students with theoretical knowledge and practical skills. The program aims to serve the University's liberal arts model of higher education by encouraging creativity, critical analysis, and research. Graduates are prepared to become life-long learners, role models and leaders.

The Department of International Relations aspires to create an innovative and challenging learning environment that prepares students to influence a diverse and changing global arena.

The Department of International Relations at the American University of Kuwait adheres to the values embraced by the University, namely freedom of expression, intellectual inquiry, individual rights, and cultural diversity. The Department also upholds strong moral principles, integrity, and high professional standards and ethics.
