International Political Economy Track of B.A. in Economics Description

International Political Economy at Bryant assists students in better understanding cultural diversity and variations in economic and political systems among nations. It provides educational opportunity for students to know who are the key players in the global arena and what are the international issues confronting the United States. It teaches students the analytical tools they need to interpret such issues and evaluate international policies. While graduate-level studies in politics, economics and law are options, with global issues studies, students will gain the necessary flexibility to seek career opportunities in government, non-government organization (NGOs), international organizations as well as businesses.
