Established in memory of Charles H. Murphy, Sr. (1870-1954), and inspired by the vision of Charles H. Murphy, Jr. (1920-2002), The Murphy Institute exists to help Tulane faculty and students understand economic, moral, and political problems we all face and think about. More important, it exists to help us understand how these problems have come to be so closely interconnected.
The Institute consists of five overlapping programs that reinforce each other: an undergraduate major in Political Economy, a graduate program offering an M.A. in Political Economy with Data Analytics, the Center for Ethics and Public Affairs, the Center for Public Policy Research, and the Center on Law and the Economy.
