Majors Seminar

Instructor: Staff

3 Credits

The political economy majors seminar focuses on a large theme or question that no single discipline in the program uniquely claims for its own and no one approach exhausts. Examples of such issues: the rise of the nation-state, capitalism and democracy, the political economy of industrializing America, the foundations of economic change, the political economy of globalization.

In designing a majors seminar, Murphy Institute faculty explore issues that currently most engage them as scholars and that sustain a coherent cross-disciplinary course offering.
