The Political Economy Program: An Informal Guide.
The political economy program at Williams College is described. This program is a joint major drawing upon the political science and economics departments and is designed to give those who enter public service, business or law a grasp of the governmental and economic environment within which they will have to operate. It also may give those who continue in academic work an opportunity to make the interdependence of political and economic forces the foundation of their more advanced studies. The required courses in economics and political science are described. Financial assistance has been offered for students who wish to work in an internship position related to public policy-making. Placements have included international organizations, research with government departments or interest groups, positions under political officeholders, and social or political action organizations. Requirements for participating in the honors thesis program in political economy are specified. Students who have completed the political economy program in the past have customarily entered law schools, business and business administration programs, public and international policy programs, interest groups, public service, politics, teaching, graduate schools of economics or political science, and research organizations.
