Philosophy, Politics and Economics

Student Voice

"What I do know, though, is that I’ve experienced more intellectual and personal growth on this academic trajectory that I ever could have anticipated when first I applied to Pomona"


The departments of Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) jointly offer a major in which students receive a foundation in the methods and issues of each discipline, combining normative sophistication with empirical grounding and institutional savvy. PPE serves as a structured but flexible multidisciplinary program in the liberal arts for students who want a broader approach than is possible within a single department. The major provides excellent preparation for careers in law, business and public service.

The major in PPE is administered by a steering committee made up of faculty from the philosophy, politics, and economics departments.
