Philosophy, political science and economics major Antrim Ross ’16 shares her thoughts on her major.
Philosophy challenges students to move beyond uncritical patterns of thought, to recognize problems, and to exchange a more naive world view for a more considered and justifiable one. In doing so, students learn to think in ways that are simultaneously both disciplined and imaginative.
The Political Science curriculum allows students to explore political theory and issues in the United States and around the world through courses ranging from the U.S. Congress or Presidency to courses on Russia or Terrorism to politics of developing nations, human rights or the global environment.
Denison's Department of Economics is ranked among the nation's top economics programs for undergraduates by Change Magazine. The curriculum focuses on helping you to develop an understanding of the institutional, analytic and empirical framework within which economic decision-making occurs.
