The departments of Philosophy, Politics and Economics jointly offer a major in which students receive a foundation in the methods and issues of each discipline, combining normative sophistication with empirical grounding and institutional savvy. A PPE major learns to integrate knowledge of economic and political institutions with a broader vision of the goals and purposes of human society. PPE is excellent preparation for careers in law, business and public service and serves as a structured but flexible multidisciplinary program in the liberal arts for students who want a broader approach than is generally possible within a single department. The major in PPE is administered by a faculty committee representing the three disciplines.
