International economics majors intending to do graduate work in international studies or intending to pursue a career with a governmental or nongovernmental agency are strongly encouraged to consider a minor or major in political science or one of the international studies tracks to complement the international economics major. You also are encouraged to work closely with a member of the department to select complementary general education courses.
