Political Economy is an interdisciplinary degree that unites the three most rigorous disciplines in the social sciences: economics, politics and law.
Completing a Political Economy program will qualify you for graduate work in public policy, political science or law. Or you could jump right into a promising job at an eminent think tank!
Our program offers the same tools as most pre-law majors, but they are taught in a pragmatic style that teaches you how to apply them to everyday situations.
As a Political Economy major, you will work closely with the Center for Free Enterprise, which will connect you with leading scholars in your field.
You will develop a foundation for quantitative analysis, enhance your writing skills, and promote institutions that support a civil society.
Florida Southern gives you a solid foundation and practical experience in the law and our legal system.
A full description of the curriculum and course titles can be found in the academic catalog.
Many extra-curricular organizations are associated with this program, including Delta Sigma Pi, the professional business fraternity; Phi Alpha Delta, a pre-law fraternity; and the Elite Business Students group.
