The BA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) offers rigorous training in all three disciplines of philosophy, politics and economics. The program is inspired by the well-established degree created in Oxford over a hundred years ago. You will develop a wide range of skills through the study of political and social structures, an examination of fundamental questions about reality as well as an investigation of the principles that govern the production and allocation of resources. As part of the program, you will complete an interdisciplinary BA thesis and a capstone project and can take courses outside the Philosophy, Politics and Economics framework to gain fresh or contrasting perspectives.
You will receive thorough training in at least two of the three core disciplines. You can also select from a broad range of elective courses offered by the other two BA programs at CEU.
