This course has been designed by Ca’ Foscari University as a cutting-edge program of study entirely taught in English. Its interdisciplinarity brings together the teaching of philosophy, economics and international studies in the unique context of Italian academic environment, and is intended to align itself with similar courses at European level. The program is patterned after the Philosophy, Politics, Economics (P.P.E.) degree taught at Oxford. A number of departments and Ca’ Foscari’s new International College are involved in the teaching and management of the course. This course enables students to acquire basic knowledge in the three main subjects of philosophy, economics and international studies, analytic and critical skills to approach topics and domains of inquiry in an interdisciplinary way, and awareness of the practical implications that studying philosophy, economics and international studies has for the understanding of the world we live in.
