Philosophy, Politics and Economics (BA)

This demanding major trains students in political economy, grounding their study in the historical, conceptual, and moral foundations of our shared political and economic lives. The interdisciplinary major allows students to trace interconnections between political, economic and legal issues within a range of broader humanistic concerns. It also fosters the development of logical, quantitative and analytic skills needed for clear thinking and effective communication, leaving students with a wide range of options for further, more specialized study or careers in law, politics or economics. The major requires 11 courses including an introductory lower-division course, a final capstone seminar and a range of further courses in the three disciplines.
