Philosophy, Politics and Economics Minor

Are you interested in how the economy, political institutions, and questions of justice interact? The Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) minor is all about understanding complex social problems. PPE gives you a set of interdisciplinary tools to think rigorously about important problems. How should morality shape the market? How do political institutions shape our political and economic options? How should we deal with deep disagreements? What is justice, and what institutions do we need to achieve it? What’s a good measure of a successful city or country? 

Studying PPE prepares you for a variety of careers, including law, politics, and business, as well as further academic pursuits in philosophy or the social sciences. PPE also helps you understand the world around you, and builds up your skills as a citizen.
