A philosopher writes in seeking advice on starting a new program at his college:
I teach at a Catholic small liberal arts college. My department teaches philosophy in the core and offers a minor. I’m thinking of pushing for an integrated major common to many colleges and universities called PPE (Philosophy, Politics, and Economics). I need to gather evidence, testimonials, and other sources of evidence about the success of such programs elsewhere. I thought I would ask you fellow philosophers if you have such data and/or testimonials, and what if any challenges does your current PPE program face? Has enrollment prospered since its adoption?
Fellow philosophers, if you are part of a PPE program or something similar, or looked into starting one, please share your experiences, insights, and advice.
