BA in Philosophy, Politics, and Law
Politics and law shape the world we
inhabit together. Philosophical study of the intersections of these domains
provides insight about the nature of the problems we face in our social lives
and helps to cultivate the ideas and habits of mind to craft intelligent

The Bachelor of Arts degree in
Philosophy, Politics, and Law was created through the cooperation of faculty

careers and an improved understanding of virtuous citizenship.
