Philosophy/Philosophy, Politics, and Economics, BA

The Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) track is designed to help students understand the social institutions and structures that shape our world by looking at them through the lenses of three disciplines. To understand how the social world actually is, could be, and should be, the track combines the expertise and perspectives of philosophy, political science, and economics: economics to explain how economic systems operate and predict the effects of potential policy changes; political science to explain how political systems operate and how those systems might be changed; and, philosophy to analyze the moral costs and benefits of different economic and political systems. This track will be of interest to students concerned about the impact of law, policy, business, and government on individuals, social groups, and the broader world. It also prepares students for careers in law, government, public policy, public administration, the non-profit sector, advocacy, or consulting.
