Welcome to Sigma Iota Rho

The purpose of this organization shall be to promote and reward scholarship and service among students and practitioners of international studies, international affairs, and global studies and to foster integrity and creative performance in the conduct of world affairs.

Sigma Iota Rho is the Honors Society for International and Area Studies students at UC Berkeley. It serves as a forum for the best and brightest IAS students to come together and expand their horizons by learning from and with one another. Many members also benefit from a much closer relationship with faculty and professors than can be achieved in classroom settings.
