About the Program

The Political Economy Reading Program is a one semester, non-credit reading group where participants read and discuss selections from classic works and from contemporary scholars that address important questions in political economy. Participants that successfully complete the program receive a $1,000 scholarship.

The Political Economy Reading Program operates concurrently at Texas Tech University and Angelo State University. Both groups examine the same set of readings and interact with one another at a summit hosted at Texas Tech University.

Participants meet weekly for discussions facilitated by a Texas Tech University or Angelo State University faculty member, whose role is to pose questions and encourage participation from each member of the group.
