Political and Economic Philosophy

Our major in Political and Economic Philosophy (PEP) is unique. It is a major for students who like philosophy and want to prepare for a career in law, business or government. PEP students desire to understand the big picture of how philosophy, business, and politics combine to define our nationís policies, laws and free-market economy.

Some of the law schools PEP majors have attended include: Washington and Lee University, Ohio State University, Duquesne University, University of Akron, West Virginia University, University of Dayton, Santa Clara University, Detroit-Mercy University, Syracuse University, University of Pennsylvania and University of Pittsburgh.

Besides pre-law, PEP majors usually intend to go on to post-graduate or professional schools. Over the years, PEP alumni have earned a Ph.D. in economics from George Mason University, a post-graduate Legal Assistant degree from Georgetown University, MBAís and various mastersí degrees in political science, public administration, human resources management, and business finance.
