Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE): Creating a New Minor/Certificate Program

The creation of an interdisciplinary program in philosophy, politics, and economics.

Siena Heights University (SHU), a Dominican college in Adrian, MI, proposes an NEH Connections planning grant, “Philosophy, Politics, and Economics: Creating a New Minor/Certificate Program at Siena Heights University” (hereafter “PPE”). PPE will be an interdisciplinary program involving the Philosophy Dept., Political Science Dept., and Business and Management Division (BAM). The program will be designed for students with interests in political theory, political philosophy, and economic theory. The humanities—including ethical, philosophical, cultural, and historical perspectives—are often missing from economic and political science approaches to problems, which this project seeks to address. Faculty will draw upon programs at SHU, and on PPE best practices, to create a new program. As a result, SHU will be well positioned to implement the program and become a model for other small-sized institutions of higher education across the country looking to implement PPE programs.
