International Economics

PCA Description

Over the past few decades the global economy has become increasingly integrated, characterized by liberalization of trade and capital as well as sourcing of labor and natural resources from foreign markets. This process of economic globalization has led to profound changes in individuals, societies and landscapes throughout the world. Students who choose this professional concentration area will learn how globalization intersects with gender, identity, public policy, human mobility, nature/society relations and cultural adaptation to global change. Graduates will be well-poised to pursue careers that help build a just and sustainable economy.
