Students are required to follow the Academic Handbook and Code of Student Responsibility​​

The department houses six core faculty and two adjunct faculty whose research and teaching interests include postcolonial theory, Middle East politics, critical social theory, migration and diaspora studies, gender and sexuality, critical development studies, international law, international political economy, and social movements. As an interdisciplinary program, we involve faculty from across the university in teaching classes, hosting events, and advising students. Affiliated faculty come from Political Science, History, Geography, Modern Languages, Latin American and Latino Studies, Anthropology, African and Black Diaspora Studies, Religious Studies, Educational Policy Studies, Environmental Sciences, and Women's and Gender Studies. Despite the varied teaching and research interests, faculty members share a commitment to examining the world critically through an interdisciplinary and international lens.
