I have planned for some time to apply to PhD programs in economics a year from now after I finish a two-year RA stint. Iíve recently been debating, however, if I should also look into applying to political science PhDs. Iím primarily interested in political economy, so I believe that I would enjoy doing either program (although I realize that there are trade-offs in choosing one program over the other).
I know that itís not uncommon for econ applicants to also apply to PPOL PhDs, but I rarely hear of them also applying to political science programs. My question then is this - would it look bad in anyway to apply to both programs potentially at the same school(s)? I donít want to give off the impression that Iím not serious/committed enough to one particular field, but itíd be nice to keep my options open and learn more thoroughly about the pros/cons specific to each department.
Thanks for any advice!
