PPE CLASSES FOR FALL 2020

The PPE Certificate requires SIX courses. The Gateway (PS 331) is taken early on, though you are welcome to take some electives first.  The Capstone (PS 449) is a SENIOR level course, to be taken in your fourth year.

The other four courses are electives. You take two courses in one discipline (your “concentration” in the Certificate) and one in each of the others. For example, if you concentrate in Philosophy, you would take the Gateway, two Philosophy courses, one Economics course, and one Political Science class. If you concentrate in Economics, then you would take two Economics courses, and one in each Philosophy and Political Science, and so on.

Every semester we list the courses that are available for credit as PPE Electives for the coming semester. Here are those courses for Fall 2020.
