The philosophy, politics, and economics (PPE) program brings together three fundamental disciplines that use different tools and methodologies to study the human experience, but are all concerned with the many, often conflicting, ideas of what is good for people and the challenges that arise when these varied approaches are put into practice.
The PPE program offers students the opportunity of a multidisciplinary immersion in the problems that structure the human world. Courses in the PPE program are drawn from established courses in all three disciplines, with special topics courses offered in upper years.
In your philosophy classes you will cultivate a broad view of human experience and values by examining concepts like:
- how we can know the world
- the nature of justice
- our responsibility to others
The study of politics will give you insight into:
- the workings of government
- the meaning of citizenship
- how society, economy, and culture shape the political community
In economics, you will look at:
- the development of modern economies
- the evolution of economic systems
- the outcomes of economic policies
- the economic consequences of participation in trade, exchange, or employment
Most of the required courses for the program are at the first and second-year level, giving you greater flexibility in your upper years to tailor your courses to your interests.
Graduates of the PPE program are broadly educated to consider complex contemporary concerns.
