The study of Economics provides an understanding of economic concepts and the functioning of the economy, in conjunction with economic analysis in problem solving. Modern Political Science is equally concerned with questions of political philosophy and with the pursuit of social scientific research.
The combined Economics/Political Science major provides students rigorous preparation in both economic theory and applications with in-depth analysis of political theory. By combining coursework in both Economics and Political Science, students gain an interdisciplinary perspective important to political and economic issues. Students in this program will gain insight into a variety of areas including trade, monetary systems, and the interplay between politics and economics.
