Lehigh is among the very few major universities in the United States with a separate Department of International Relations (IR). Lehigh's distinctive organization is matched by the excellence of its teaching and research programs. It is not an exaggeration to say that we offer an undergraduate education in International Relations that is among the very best in the country. The IR Department has a full-time faculty of seven committed teachers and dedicated scholars, who collectively teach roughly 300 students each semester and advise over 130 majors. They have also earned national and international visibility through the quality of their scholarship.

The College of Arts and Sciences and The International Relations Department organized a conference entitled, Global and Regional Implications of the Syrian Crisis.  This workshop took place on November 3 and 4, 2013. All Events were streamed LIVE during this two day conference.
