Political Economy

The Murphy Institute’s undergraduate major in Political Economy is one of Tulane’s most acclaimed majors. This interdisciplinary program is the creation of faculty drawn from the departments of Economics, History, Philosophy, and Political Science and who teach courses specifically designed for the major. They are among Tulane’s most productive and respected scholars, honored over the years with University awards for advising and teaching, as well as prestigious national research fellowships. Issues of politics, economics, law, and philosophy are inextricably mixed together, and the major is designed to help students understand that delicate mixture.
