Area studies and comparative politics

As pursued in the United State, area studies and comparative politics traditionally has dealt with the politics of countries and global regions other than the US. The modern nation-state – its support, its evolution, it alternatives, and its future in the face of globalization – has been a focal point. Tech's international studies program blends the subfields of comparative politics and international relations.
