Philosophy, Politics, and Law (PPL): is an interdisciplinary program focused on law, politics, policy, and citizenship.
One of its animating ideas is that understanding law and related phenomena requires
appreciating the variety of questions prompted by legal institutions. By embracing
the approaches of multiple disciplines that traditionally engage with these questions,
the major enables students to think seriously about the various aspects of the legal
and political worlds. PPL majors take courses in philosophy, history, and political
science, and have the option to take selected courses in other related disciplines.
The major emphasizes rigor in argumentation, effective communication, analytical skills,
and methodological awareness.
