The International Relations major is designed for students with a particular interest in comparative and international politics. In addition to the CORE Requirements, students take additional coursework in Economics and substantial upper division work in Political Science. While all majors provide an excellent foundation for a range of careers, as evidenced by SIS alumni, this major prepares students for careers in government and law in particular, as well as for graduate school. Students must complete a minimum of 128 units with a Pacific cumulative and major/program grade point average of 2.0 in order to earn the bachelor of arts degree in international relations. Accelerated Master of Science in Applied International Economics at Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin The School of International Studies, in collaboration with the Economics Department at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, offers students the opportunity to pursue a Master of Science degree in Applied Economics (MSAE) at Marquette with six possible specializations including International Economics. This accelerated degree is designed to be completed within 5 years of entering Pacific, which is 1 year sooner than the usual time required to complete undergraduate and masters degrees. Interested students would earn their BA degree at Pacific's School of International Studies while following the typical 4-year plan. During this time, in consultation with academic advisers, they would also successfully complete At least one calculus course, ECON 055, ECON 101, ECON 103, ECON 190, and Two upper-division economics courses (with a grade of "B" or better) specifically tailored to satisfy 2 of the 10 courses required to complete the MSAE. Students must inform their academic advisers of their interest in the program by the time they achieve junior standing or they may not be able to complete both degrees in 5 years. Students would apply to the MSAE program at Marquette during the first semester of their final year at Pacific. Marquette requires all applicants to take either the GRE or GMAT exam and to have an overall GPA of 3.0 or better. Admission to the MSAE program is at the sole discretion of Marquette and is not guaranteed.
