Better decisions for a better world

Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE)

In what kind of world do we want to live? How might societies be organised to foster fairness? What kinds of challenges do democracies currently face? What underlies economic downturns? How can we formulate environmental policies that are progressive, yet attainable?

During the small-scale and intensive bachelor's programme Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE), you will acquire the knowledge and skills needed to address today's most urgent societal questions. The PPE programme at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam offers a well-designed, coherent set of courses that combines fundamental education in the disciplines of philosophy, political science and economics with specifically designed interdisciplinary courses.
