Officer05 Posted October 24, 2015 Share Posted October 24, 2015 I don't know if this has been discussed elsewhere as I could not find any. The title speaks for itself. What level of Math and Econ are required for policy PhDs vis-a-vis traditional Poli Sci PhDs. I have seen several programs including Harvard PubPol insist on multivariable calculus and Micro/Macro Econ. My first degree was a BA Hons in Poli Sci which covered no math/econ at all though my masters had international economics and IR. I have seen Policy PhD dissertations tilt more towards Econ than Pol Sci. I have research experience foreign policy work exp. back home. Can this offset the math requirements for a policy PhD.
