Politics, Philosophy, 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 faculty are committed to students and active scholarship.  

Our Law & Policy and Politics, Philosophy & Economics majors engage theoretical debates in philosophy, politics, economics and history, combined with hands-on experience available through our field work courses and internships. Both majors are excellent choices for students interested in current events, public affairs, politics, ethics, human rights, economics, international studies, law, or social philosophy.
