International Relations at Penn

<p>Hello, I've been admitted to Penn this year, but I will be taking a year off to go to missions and travel around the world.</p>

<p>My major is most likely going to be International Relations with a business related minor.</p>

<p>If anyone in the forum is an IR major at Penn, can you tell me how it is, what classes you are taking, and what book you are reading?</p>

<p>I understand that it's an interdisciplinary major, but aren't there intro IR textbooks that you would read? I don't want to completely empty out my brain during the gap year. I am keeping my options open, so I don't know which area of the world I want to focus in (maybe Asia or Latin America)</p>

<p>I've already tried to research a bit, but all I found was basic IR courses list and approved IR course catalog. </p>

<p>Thanks in advance for helping out!
By the way I cannot believe I am back at collegeconfidential.</p>

<p>Hi there. I've commented on the awesomeness of Penn IR at length and if you do a search you should be able to find some of it :)</p>

<p>thank you appreciate it! will do! =)</p>
