IPE is a very rigorous and challenging curriculum (major). Its a superb program.
IR is a very hot major for students across the country. But there are more than one way to skin a cat. There are also area majors, like Russian Area Studies, Middle Eastern Studies. Fordham even has Irish Studies. You can combine those with languages, political science, economics, business, whatever.
Careers in IR usually require a Masters for minimum. Thus, graduate school is where it is at for IR, if you ask me. Fordham is an OUTSTANDING feeder school for PRESTIGIOUS programs in IR at Columbia, NYU, Ivy League, JHU, Georgetown.
I wouldnt fret about it. Its a great school and LOTS of fun!
