Humanities and Statistics or Big Data

TwistedBlissTwistedBliss Registered User Posts: 18 Junior Member
Background: I am a double major in history and political science at Michigan State University, with minors in economics and philosophy & law.

Most of the graduate programs I have been looking are interdisciplinary, but with a larger focus on political science and economics. My true loves, however, are political philosophy, international relations history, and statistics. There's obviosuly a future with statistics in political science and economics, but I am wondering if any of you are familiar with a career opportunity or degree programs which employ both statistics and history or statistics and philsophy - or philosophy & big data or history & big data.

    Perhaps decision sciences? It's not quite a blend of the fields, but it does have some influences from philosophy especially. Carnegie Mellon is probably the premiere place to do that.
