Studying Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Weber State
Weber State’s Philosophy, Politics and Economics designer BIS degree brings together three complementary analytical frameworks which combine to train civil servants and business leaders who deeply understand the interconnections between ethics, economics, and policy. This program is also designed to prepare graduates for the M.A. program in public policy at the University of Utah.
Philosophy, Politics and Economics Highlights
Modern social and political challenges, such as climate change, immigration, and global pandemics, demand interdisciplinary solutions, like this program, which combines an understanding of economic reality with political will and ethical thinking. Take coursework in each of the three areas, culminating with a capstone project.
Beyond the Classroom
All majors are encouraged to apply for internships to get practical experience in politics, whether in local offices, the Utah State Legislature, or in Congressional offices in Washington DC. The Olene S. Walker Institute of Politics & Public Service helps with the coordination and placement of interns.
