Are you still undecided about your major? Consider majoring in Political Philosophy, Policy, and Law (PPL). There is an interest meeting on Wednesday, February 26th from 730-930 in NAU HALL 342!
The selective interdisciplinary major provides the opportunity for undergraduates to study law and public policy from a philosophical perspective. Students in the program study topics such as extending legal privilege of marriage to same-sex couples, how far free speech rights extend, should the state fund the arts, etc.
There are co-requisites that must be completed by a student’s third year: Economics (ECON 201), History of Political Thought, and Legal History and Public Policy. The PPL program no longer has any pre-requisites; however, students are encouraged to complete ECON 2010 before applying to the program, another course from the co-requisite list, and exposure to courses in philosophy and/or political theory.
Political Philosophy, Policy, and Law is a major with three components that require the three co-requisite courses, two required PPL courses, and an individually personalized set of 8 courses with at least three courses from both Theoretical foundations and Policy and Law, For the required PPL courses all PPL majors must take PPL 2010 in the fall semester of their third year, and PPL 4010 in their final semester.
The application deadline is on Friday March 7th before spring break. Best of luck wahoos.
