Back to Programs


The Politics, History, and Economics program offers a general degree as well as standard, Atlantic Studies, International Studies, and Public Policy Studies streams.

We believe in the importance of a strong liberal arts program, so we require all Politics, History, and Economics students to take significant classes in other subject areas. This means Politics, History, and Economics students have the flexibility to take courses in other disciplines that interest them. Our hope is that you graduate with a broader perspective on how Politics, History, and Economics connects with society.
