With a strong foundation in the liberal arts, International Relations majors are well suited for a variety of careers. Occupational opportunities include government administration, politics and campaigns, public policy, non-profit organizations, international relations, business, law, and journalism.
There are so many career resources available to undergraduates that it can be a bit overwhelming. To get you started, we recommend that you take advantage of GVSU's Career Services office, and read two books. GVSU's Career Services site can be found at http://www.gvsu.edu/careers/
The Career Services office has a very helpful Career Guide available at this site that is mandatory reading for anyone at GVSU contemplating a career. The office offers practice interviews and assistance with building and refining your résumé. They also sponsor periodic career fairs, which are chances to meet directly with potential employers.
These three sites can link you to all the professional master’s degree programs offered in the public administration, international affairs, and public policy fields:
National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA)
Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA)
Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management (APPAM)
