Philosophy, Politics, and Economics

This minor is designed for students with serious interests at the intersection of political theory, political philosophy, and economic theory. It aims to help students acquire some fluency in each of the disciplines, as well as provide a forum where all three disciplines can be brought to bear on common problems.
