The degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics has a strong tradition in the Anglo-Saxon academic context and is currently taught at almost fifty leading universities (Duke, Bern, Hamburg, Manchester, Oxford, Pennsylvania or Yale).
Our bachelor’s degree addresses the social sciences from different perspectives, and provides students with the tools they need to analyze an increasingly global, complex and connected world.
Future students should have a minimum base of mathematics, as well as an aptitude for communication and the ability to discuss and dialogue. Prior knowledge of history, philosophy, and logic will be useful to elaborate analyses of theories and data related to political science. A general interest in the world of politics, ethics, law, and sociology is equally relevant, as well as a curiosity for public management, innovation, and an interest in lifelong learning.
The strongly interdisciplinary nature of the program requires a methodological reflection on the knowledge involved. For this reason, the degree includes:
Methodology of social sciences. Students will be able to not only know the contents established in the curriculum, but also to reflect on the ways in which these contents and knowledge are accessed.
Logics and theories of reasoning and argumentation.
A specific philosophical dimension. Both knowledge and action are necessarily reflective; therefore, the degree takes into account, especially through seminars, the philosophical discussion of issues such as the processes of constitution of identity (personal and collective) and recognition, the question of the meanings of freedom, the fact that we can think and justify as a just society, and so on. Topics that help to see how these and other issues cross many other sections of the program and are present in the discussions of culture and contemporary societies.
The main objective of the degree is to train professionals who can work in public and private institutions. Graduates will gain a solid background in political science and economics, with an important foundation in the critical and moral analysis provided by the humanities, particularly philosophy.
Another of the programme's objectives consists of ensuring that students comprehend that contemporary societies are situated in a specific geographical, cultural and historical framework; that they are aware of the relationships of dependence and interdependence of the problems and conflicts that arise in such societies; and that they develop a cosmopolitan understanding with a view to coming up with proposals for solving those problems. International/transnational governability has both an institutional and a normative dimension, of which students must have a grasp.
The knowledge and ideas corresponding to the objective in question revolve around theories (scientific, normative) and proposals (legal, political) involving:
The different perspectives of the history of the present or immediate history (types of stories and types of descriptions) and their diverse methodologies.
Cultural diversity, given that neither globalization nor cosmopolitan perspectives are in a context of neutral cultural meanings / values.
Gender and race issues (gender and ethnic diversity) both in relations between cultures and in places of conflict and social dynamics.
The various ideological, theoretical and normative positions in understanding the general objectives.
Philosophy, Politics and Economics graduates will know how to:
Assess the effects that the new ideological, political, economic and technological forms in the contemporary world and in social conflicts have on the human condition, from an understanding of contemporary societies and from a globalized and cosmopolitan perspective.
Put into practice the interdisciplinary and historically situated character of theories, methodologies and problems, which have a history and a process of formation and give rise to issues that have not been resolved.
Integrate the knowledge acquired in the context of the different disciplines, both philosophical and political, historical and economic. The aim is to interpret the results, evaluate the conclusions, propose appropriate answers to society and assess the results obtained accurately.
Design programs in different disciplines that respond to the needs of improving the living conditions of society, taking into account national and international political actors, the relationships they establish with political institutions, and the socio-economic environment of the moment.
Implement programs designed to improve the living conditions of society, based on its design and the assessment of the viability and sustainability of the program.
Evaluate the improvement programs, their implementation, the benefit and the performance that have taken place in the international and local environments, in the institutions, in the management and in the quality of the public or private services.
Make judgments that include critical reflection on fundamental social, scientific and economic issues in a representative context of both international and local society.
Students that gradute with a PPE degree will potentially work in the fields of politics, journalism, industry, education, enterprise management, consultancy, public relations, diplomatic service, international institutions and local and regional governments.
