The political economy program has four main goals:1) to provide an understanding of various ideologies and methodologies, and how they are embodied in political and economic institutions;
2) to provide insight into the processes and accompanying institutions in which the political economy is organized both domestically and globally;
3) to develop a set of conceptual tools for analyzing political and economic processes and institutions;
4) to build a foundation for reaching informed judgments on issues of public policy.
No major is offered in political economy.
