International Studies / Études internationales


The first of its kind in Canada, our International Studies program arms you with a deeper understanding of how governments, law, politics, business, culture, science and the environment relate on the international stage.

Learning from internationally renowned professors in small classes means you’re well-positioned to join the ranks of Glendon grads working in prominent positions at organizations such as the Canadian Foreign Service, Oxfam and the United Nations.

Prepare for a global career

Ranked third in Canada for international focus by the Globe & Mail’s University Report (2012), Glendon offers you a degree without borders – whether with our unique iBA degree, with an international exchange or internship, or by co-coordinating our award-winning International Studies Student Symposium.

Premier du genre à avoir été créé au Canada, notre programme d’études internationales vous permet d’acquérir une compréhension approfondie des rapports entre les gouvernements, le droit, la politique, les affaires, la culture, les sciences et l’environnement sur la scène internationale.

En étudiant avec des professeurs de renommée mondiale, dans de petites classes, vous serez bien préparés pour rejoindre les rangs des diplômés de Glendon qui occupent des postes de premier plan dans des organisations comme le Ministère des affaires étrangères, Commerce et Développement Canada, l’Oxfam ou l’ONU.

Préparez-vous à une carrière internationale

Classé 3e au Canada pour son orientation internationale (Rapport du Globe & Mail sur les universités, 2012), Glendon vous offre un diplôme sans frontières : vous pouvez obtenir notre diplôme unique d’i.B.A., participer à un échange ou à un stage à l’étranger, ou coordonner notre Symposium d’études internationales primé, organisé par des étudiants.
