About

The Master in Analytical Political Economy program at Duke University offers a quantitatively rigorous curriculum rooted in economic and political theory, application, and analysis. Students have the opportunity to gain experience with economic and mathematical modeling along with a deep understanding of how and why policies are developed and implemented.

Overview

The Master in Analytical Political Economy program at Duke University is a joint master’s program of the Departments of Economics and Political Science, necessitated by a growing interest in political economy and political science among young economists. These fields are converging, and policy economics—particularly macroeconomic and international trade policy—increasingly includes a strong political component.

Political economy examines the reciprocal relationships between politics and markets, both within and among countries, using a variety of analytical tools, including those of economics. 

Its concerns include:

  • interactions among economic and political development; 
  • cooperation and conflict among nations, groups, and individuals; 
  • the distribution of material resources and political power; 
  • the effects of political actors and institutions on economic outcomes; 
  • the causes and consequences of technological and structural change, growth, and globalization;
  • regulation.
