Study a Bachelor of Arts in Politics, History, and Economics at King's
Do you have a passion for the big issues that face our world today? Want to work with others to make things better? Modeled after the acclaimed and widely recognized Philosophy, Politics, and Economics major at Oxford University, the Politics-History-Economics (PHE) program at King's is a unique interdisciplinary degree that prepares students for life and careers in law, policy, the public sphere, and much more.
In the PHE program, students study the institutions, structures, and practices that shape how we live together as a society. Students learn how different actors – such as government, non-profits, business, the media, schools, and the church – each play a unique role in contributing to the common good. Students learn how each of these interact with each other, sometimes cooperating, sometimes conflicting, and how these relationships can be structured in ways that promote flourishing.
Why study three disciplines in one degree? Each discipline contributes unique understandings and expertise relevant to participation in the public sphere. Together, they equip students to think deeply and critically, and to flexibly apply a broad range of tools in complex, ever-changing situations.
