Importance of Undergrad Major on PhD admissions
I'm entertaining the idea of pursuing a doctorate degree in political science or a related field after undergraduate school. Given that, I must decide from two majors that most interest me: an interdisciplinary one; ethics, politics and economics; and the other the traditional, focused political science major.
Would the Ethics, politics and economics major be any liability at all for top political science PhD programs for a student coming straight out of undergrad? It makes logical sense that a traditional political science major would allow for more specialized research in the field that would be helpful in graduate studies.
