Better decisions for a better world
What kind of world do people want to live in? How can societies be organised in a way that's fair? What role do new media play in the political opinions being formed by populations today?
During this intensive, small-scale, selective bachelor's programme, you will benefit from a truly interdisciplinary programme that applies politics, philosophy, and economics directly to public policy issues in practice.

Through studying PPE at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam you will cover not just core courses in the three disciplines, but you will also learn to apply those disciplines to challenging social themes like climate change, welfare policies, ethics of markets, or the formation of political coalitions. Plus, you will master mathematical theories and methods in order to improve your analytical thinking.
