Duke University Philosophy, Politics, & Economics (PPE) offers interdisciplinary coursework for undergraduates seeking a certificate program designed to integrate research in the fields of philosophy, political science, and economics.
While we offer a certificate, the program is mirrored by a PPE Program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, which offers a minor. Students pursuing either the minor at Chapel Hill or the certificate at Duke can take courses at the other school to meet the relevant requirements.
"Duke students who want to go beyond just getting a major can choose from dozens of minors or second majors, or even create their own courses of study. But there's one opportunity that can go overlooked among all the options: the University's certificate programs.
"In supplementing their majors with certificates, students gain interdisciplinary exposure and marketable skills for the workforce, while also reaping the benefits of a traditional dive into an academic field."
