The collaborative PhD with a Specialization in Political Economy is especially designed for Carleton University doctoral students in participating programs in the Faculties of Arts and Social Science and Public Affairs who wish to enrich their training in a particular discipline or area of study by developing a political economy approach through interdisciplinary dialogue.
Carleton University’s location in Canada’s capital city enables us to attract distinguished scholars from all over the world as guest faculty or speakers. Our students also have unparalleled access to Ottawa-based research offices and organizations, such as political party offices, NGO head offices, not-for-profit agencies and head offices of labour unions and advocacy organizations. Our students benefit both research-wise and career-wise from close proximity to these organizations.
Students may only apply to this collaborative only program once they are enrolled in one of the participating PhD programs mentioned below. Applications are made to the Institute of Political Economy.
- Political economy of resource extraction
- Water, food, environment
- Latin America, Africa, Canada
- Labour and social activism
