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 solutions to these challenges.

The Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Law was created through the cooperation of faculty from philosophy, politics and international affairs, business, honors, history, and math, and offers a truly well-rounded education.

Whether your future consists of graduate school, law school, or professional work, this degree will prepare you for a broad range of rewarding careers and an improved understanding of virtuous citizenship.
