Our graduates have said that with the BSc Economics and Politics you get two degrees – and two sets of career options – for the price of one. And it’s true that much of the time we keep economics and politics as separate subjects with separate methods, but it’s important to bring them together as well. Our BSc Economics and Politics has an interdisciplinary spine running down each length, with a special interdisciplinary module in each year looking at the relations between economics and government policy, whether it be the ideological content of economics or the economic motives governing politicians. -

Similar to the B.A., this B.S. program has a strong major, and opportunity for a minor, but it offers a wider elective option through the elimination of the foreign language requirement. It is also an appropriate preparation for graduate school and especially for law school. It provides the background for careers which need the informed perspective of a liberal arts degree (as journalism, public relations, etc.). It is a more direct preparation for career fields which draw more directly on the major field (as legislative aide, political action, community service, etc.). Students develop writing and analytical skills useful in business and professional careers. For more information, please see the Curriculum Sheets and Requirements for the B.S. in Political Science. This degree requires completion of a minor or an approved certificate program. -
