Politics and Economics

This is a sample degree plan for students pursuing a double major in politics and economics. All students must consult with an advisor in making course selections that meet their individual needs. Students pursuing a double major in politics and economics should consider completing a full semester studying abroad, and should consult with faculty advisors in both politics and economics early in their program to plan effectively.
