About PPPA - Politics, Philosphy and Public Affairs

Welcome to the division of Politics, Philosophy and Public Affairs at the University of Washington Tacoma.  We offer two innovative, interdisciplinary majors and several minors, all of which explore today’s social challenges.  Our Law & Policy and Politics, Philosophy & Economics majors engage theoretical debates in philosophy, politics, economics and history, and combine this with hands on experience available through our internships and field work courses.  Both majors are excellent choices if you are interested in current events, public affairs, politics, ethics, human rights, economics, international studies, law or social philosophy.  Our faculty are committed to students and to active scholarship.  We hope you find what you need on these pages and welcome further inquiries.
