  • Topics Courses

  • The following course numbers—INTS 4706, 4708, 4709, 4710, 4711 and PPOL 4701 and PPOL 4702 —refer to special “topics” courses that are new and/or special course offerings. Topics courses may be added to the curriculum at the discretion of the department, in order to accommodate special opportunities (e.g. a temporary visiting faculty member), or to focus on timely developments, debates, or trends in international affairs. Topics courses are generally offered only once.  In the event that a topics course is offered more than once, the assigned course number is subject to change in subsequent quarters.


    Because topics courses are not a part of our regular curriculum, details such as course title and description are not included in the permanent course catalog

  • Registering for multiple topics courses

  • For those of you that may be attempting to register for two INTS topics courses, which are listed under the same course number (see below) please be advised that you will received a duplicate error when attempting to registrar.

    Please note that this is simply an idiosyncrasy in the registration system and, happily, the Office of the Registrar can help you register for both sections if you email them ( or stop by their office for registration assistance. Please be sure to include your name, DU ID number, and the course numbers, CRNs, and titles in questions.
