The International Relations program is based at Trinity College and has offices in the Munk School of Global Affairs. It offers undergraduates at the University of Toronto interdisciplinary major and specialist programs that emphasize the history, politics, and economics of international relations. Particular emphasis is given to the role of Canada as an international actor.
This program is designed to examine the origins, development and expansion of the international state system and international institutions and their effects on political, economic, and humanitarian issues. Much of the teaching is done by practitioners—people with experience as professional diplomats or in international agencies. It is also the host of the G8/G20 research group, The Attaché Journal of International Affairs, an academic journal of student publications, and a vibrant International Relations Society. There is a range of in-course and graduation scholarships available to International Relations students, and since the year 2000 three graduates have been awarded Rhodes Scholarships.
