Philosophy Politics and Law

Philosophy, Politics and Law (PPL)

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.
