Are you interested in socio-economic topics and intrigued by complex problems? Do you like to be challenged, and do you feel at home in an international environment? If you are considering enrolling for a Bachelor's in Political Science, Psychology, Law or Economics, then the PPLE programme may be your path to academic achievement.

To fully comprehend the questions raised in these fast-paced times, a 21st century answer can be found in the combination of four classic socio-economic disciplines: Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics. The rapid social and economic changes and growing complexity of today's society require academics and professionals who can integrate different fields of knowledge into new solutions. The Bachelor of Science (BSc) in PPLE at the UvA provides you the necessary tools to address these challenges.

Exploring the interface between the disciplines challenges your know-how and stimulates you to collaborate and share knowledge with other students and lecturers. After your studies, you will be equipped to communicate with specialists from different fields and discuss issues beyond the scope of a single discipline.

Frenk van Harreveld
Fresh ideas are born from a multi-disciplinary perspective

Frenk van Harreveld teaches two core courses within the Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics programme: Decision Making I and II.

In the Western world, freedom is an important value and we tend to see choice as a type of freedom. Yet, choice can make life very complicated for us...
We also look at how people deal with the insecurity about the outcome of their choices and at how people deal with regret. These issues have been at the centre of our research at the UvA for over 30 years. We can boast of one of the world's strongest research groups in this field, and our research naturally spills over into the classes we teach.

Decision-making is important in all of the Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics domains, but these different disciplines also have different views of how decisions are made. A judge decides a case in a specifically legal manner, quite different from how lawmakers, consumers or businessmen make their choices. The psychological perspective has more eye for the role of emotions. For example, psychological research has shown that angry judges hand out more severe punishments than sad judges. Decision-making theory is therefore an interesting arena for these different disciplines' views.

It's exciting to see what results from the confrontation of these different views. Fresh ideas are born from a multi-disciplinary perspective. This new Bachelor's programme isn't just a mixture of economics, psychology, politics and law: the confrontation between these disciplines creates a broader view of reality.
