Philosophy, Politics and Economics Minor

Philosophy, Politics and Economics is a program of study that offers an integrated approach to understanding historical and contemporary dynamics of wealth and power in relation to moral reflection. At the center of PPE is the examination of value and values (economic, political, and moral) and the ways that different systems of valuing are contested and enacted. As an interdisciplinary field, PPE is uniquely situated to ask normative questions in relation to political and economic practices, to consider the moral and political dimensions of economic activity, and to draw connections between issues that are of collective concern – locally, nationally, and globally.
