  Course Description
The study of war and conflict is one of the most exciting sub-fields of international relations. The course discusses the impact of power, economics, international organizations, and nuclear weapons on the likelihood of international war. The goal of this course is to introduce students to studies of war and international security that examine why states use force against each other. The secondary goal of this course is to improve students' research skills and help them gain a better understanding of political science research. Thus, the theory and methods of conflict literature will be compared and contrasted both to improve students' knowledge of why nations go to war and to develop their analytical skills.
