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.

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