Welcome to the Division of Politics and Economics!

Because of our joining of experts in Economic Science, International Studies, Political Science, and Public Policy, this is an intellectually lively place where you can learn tools and techniques that help you understand and influence the political and economic parts of our world. Take advantage of the many opportunities we offer for you to learn from us, from each other, and from students in other disciplines all over campus. Attend the Tuesday Talks to hear about cutting-edge research, attend Professional Development Workshops to learn about professional quirks of your fields, talk to the other interesting and goal-driven students in class, talk to the DPE faculty, and there are so many more opportunities. May this time of your life be one of growth and excitement.
