"I've never been able to see the world from so many different views at once. ”
Shayna S., Student, EXPLO Foreign Affairs
"Through my instructors and guest speakers, I have learned so much about how things really work on a global level — from what happens in secret negotiations between world leaders to what sparks a revolution in the streets of a repressed nation. This has truly been one of the most amazing experiences of my life."
Lara S., Student, EXPLO Foreign Affairs

The world of international relations requires a special kind of person: someone who is capable of entertaining disparate viewpoints, acknowledging the possibility of multiple truths, and working with a wide variety of individuals, governments, and institutions to foster — and achieve — a common goal. It requires someone with a quickness of mind, a balance of vision and pragmatism, and an openness of spirit. And, of course, a passion for tackling issues on a global scale.
EXPLO Foreign Affairs emphasizes real world applications. Draft memos and press releases, brief the President, deliver and debate a floor speech, write an op-ed, negotiate a ceasefire, and more. Participate in an international crisis simulation as a decision maker responsible for creating policy outcomes that support your nation’s interests and the common good. Learn about the history and current structure of the international system and add your analysis, your pen, and your voice to critical issues on the American foreign policy agenda.Life at EXPLO Focus
