The Global Affairs major, administered by the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, prepares Yale students for global citizenship and leadership by enhancing their understanding of the world around them. Students in this interdisciplinary major develop expertise in contemporary global affairs that is strongly grounded in the social sciences. Students in the Global Affairs major concentrate their course work in one of two tracks. The International Development track focuses on economic development and poverty, including global public health, in all but the world's wealthiest countries. The International Security track focuses on international relations, foreign policy, and diplomacy and includes topics relevant to national and human security. All majors are required to take a core course in each track and complete at least five additional courses in a single track.
