The International Relations Program is an interdisciplinary undergraduate community in the Faculty of Arts at UBC.

We are committed to fostering innovative interdisciplinary education, reflecting UBC’s commitment to excellence in global scholarship.

The program is designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the international system and its complexities. Our intention is to enable students to develop an in-depth understanding of IR by combining the insights and perspectives of different disciplines such as Economics, History, and Political Science, along with language study.

UBC’s IR Program stands as a vibrant intellectual hub for the study of global affairs in Canada, offering students unparalleled opportunities for academic and professional growth in the field of international relations.
