"I am a double major in Philosophy and Economics because I am deeply interested in and concerned with mankind's global political future."
– Christian Halstead, Class of 2020

I am a double major in Philosophy and Economics because I am deeply interested in and concerned with mankind's global political future. I believe the study of philosophy will complement my self-sustaining, extracurricular exploration of politics and give me the critical thinking skills I need to properly process information I receive, for example, from the news. Economics will help me to round out this knowledge with an understanding of the concrete, underlying, and quantified workings of humanity's newly globalized political and economic systems. Thus far as a freshman, I have worked for the news section of the Pace Press, and will soon be co-founder of the university’s first Philosophy Club. Recently, I had the opportunity to be present in Times Square as part of an ABC News Election Night special event available to students, and I felt both “star struck” at the news media experience, and flustered by the events of the evening.  Upon graduation, I would like to work in fiscal and monetary policy with the Federal Reserve Bank or be active in politics by way of a think tank.
