Address economic challenges across social, cultural, and political contexts.
The moral and political economy major encourages you to think across disciplines to come up with new and integrated approaches to ongoing societal issues. You’ll choose from a number of focus tracks based on a crucial problem, or propose an original focus track tailored to your specific interests.

In this introduction to the economic system and economic analysis, you’ll study topics like total national income and output, employment, the price level and inflation, money, the government budget, the national debt, and interest rates.
