We aim to help you find the resources best-suited to your more effective understanding and analysis of the economic questions of today and tomorrow. We emphasize an interdisciplinary and international context that encourages you to examine the social, the national, and the global, from the perspectives of multiple disciplines, so that you are prepared to face your future academic and professional career with a more reflective and ethical comprehension of present-day economics. Our classes are designed to provide you with the maximum flexibility to pursue your interests. Our many students who double-major have chosen to consider Economics via subjects as diverse as Politics and Comparative Literature. We also play an integral role in the teaching of the Philosophy, Politics, and Economics major. As you can see, the ways in which you can tackle this area of study are nearly endless.
