We live in a world that faces urgent challenges: political upheaval, climate change, and struggles over resources and beliefs within a world globalised by capital mobility and the information revolution. The master’s specialisation in Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) at Leiden University teaches you to use rigorous philosophical inquiry to grasp these challenges and rethink your responses to them.
The Philosophy, Politics and Economics master’s programme is among the first of its kind in continental Europe to be offered at master’s level. It stimulates you to creatively and critically reflect on such key questions as global justice and the nation-state, the nature of global capitalism and the changing nature of political activism.
This unique programme operates at the frontier of the PPE disciplines, providing state-of-the-art core courses and electives. It will provide you with the skills sets you need to be able to critically consider the conduct of public affairs and to intervene in dynamic and creative ways.
