There are natural affinities and common roots among several strands of Philosophy, Political Studies and Economics. For example, Economics developed from the field of Political Economy, Welfare Economics utilises concepts of social justice from Philosophy, and the Philosophy of Science has important implications for methodologies adopted in Economics and Politics.
The aim of the Master of Arts - Philosophy, Politics and Economics from University of Otago is to give a broader exposure to the range of analytical approaches in these three disciplines than would be gained within any one of the traditional single-discipline majors.
