The Murphy Institute is home to one of Tulane’s most acclaimed interdisciplinary programs. The curriculum of the undergraduate political economy major provides students with the basic skills of economic analysis; it is at the same time based firmly on the view that study of the interrelations of politics and economics has a rich humanistic tradition and its pursuit encourages sustained reflection on fundamental values.

The Institute is also an international center for advanced research and scholarship by humanists and social scientists who study the interrelations of politics and economics. Scholarly activity involves an annual program of interdisciplinary conferences, lectures, and seminars. The Institute publishes (with Cambridge University Press) “Murphy Institute Studies in Political Economy,” a series of occasional volumes comprising original essays by our faculty and visitors.
