The Politics, Philosophy and Economics (PPE) from Charles Universityorganised by the Institute of Political Studies (IPS) in academic collaboration with the Institute of Economic Studies (IES). The emphasis is placed on learning to analyse complex social, political and economic problems in a multidisciplinary manner and to solve them from complementary perspectives. Since traditionally the PPE study programmes aim at educating civic, political and business leaders, the study of philosophy is included in the curriculum to foster critical and creative thinking and to stress the importance of ethical and global dimensions of the social, political and economic reality.
Mandatory courses introduce the students to political science, philosophy and economics, with their respective methodologies, as well as provide students with basic tools of quantitative analysis. Mandatory courses are intended to give a broad overview of major topics in politics, philosophy and economics, thus providing a solid background for more in-depth study of selected topics taking place in the elective courses.
