Philosophy, Politics and Economics Minor


Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

DepartmentsEconomics ; Philosophy ; Political Science  

The Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) minor allows students to explore the interdisciplinary application of philosophy, economics and political science in theory and practice. Research on political economy and the philosophical foundations of institutions is often informed by work in all three fields, and many fundamental questions about the nature and justification of institutions presuppose the intersectionality of them. While designed for majors in one of the three disciplines, the minor is open to all BSU students. The student completes nine PPE-approved credits from each department, and enrolls in a two-semester, one-credit interdisciplinary capstone.

For further information, please contact one of the the PPE Co-Coordinators: Dr. Jordon Barkalow in the Department of Political Science, Dr. Daniel Lomba in the Department of Economics or Dr. Aeon Skoble in the Department of Philosophy.
