In an increasingly interdependent but uneven world, analysis of normative claims (Philosophy), power constellations (Politics), and efficient allocation (Economics) must be brought together for an in-depth understanding of global political processes. B.A. (Hons.) Politics, Philosophy and Economics program helps students advance their ability to think broadly and critically, to see how different modes of analysis interact, and what their respective merits and limits are. As a student, you get to learn about the political conditions in which individuals act in the modern world. You get to confront your own prejudices, and to explore how you might contribute to changing this world.
B.A. (Hons.) Politics, Philosophy and Economics program aims to provide you with a good understanding of economics, politics and philosophy at introductory level. It introduces you to a range of concepts, theories, debates and methods from social science and philosophy and provides you with skills in qualitative and quantitative analysis and communication. This 3-year program aims to equip students with the analytical tools that allow for the de-construction of “big pictures” on crucial contemporary phenomena such as globalization, democratization or development, and for the evaluation of how policy choices affect human development.
