BACHELOR OF PHILOSOPHY, POLITICS, AND ECONOMICS (PPE)

This BA program both integrates into the European-wide Bologna system and offers the best of the American undergraduate education system. After successful completion of a four-year BA, students will have a European and an American BA degree. At the beginning of the program students receive a solid foundation in all three disciplines, and as they progress through the program, they are offered an increasing amount of choice in terms of orientation and focus.

The four-year BA can pave the way to pursuing a one-year MA for students who choose to specialize further.
