Details of program The Master's in Political, Legal, and Economic Philosophy (PLEP) is a Philosophy Master's degree that emphasizes philosophical studies and introduces interdisciplinary research at the interplay between Philosophy, Political Science, Economics, and Law. It is a Mono-Master Program (120 ECTS credit points) available as a two-year, full-time course of study. Students can enter the program each semester, in spring as well as in autumn. The PLEP Master's program offers an interdisciplinary analysis of practical political questions and problems of the social world. It allows students to engage in intensive debate on normative dimensions of state action, non-state action, and economic action. You can expect small classes, with students from around the world and great supervision that will help you to develop, broaden and practice analytical capacities, learn how to argue, identify relevant questions, and acquire a good knowledge of the main topics, specific methods and core ideas of philosophy, law, economics, and politics. The PLEP aims to prepare students for both jobs in the practical fields of government, non-governmental organizations, etc. as well as academic careers. The PLEP program organizes a number of specialized events. Our PLEP Talk series invites an esteemed professor from abroad each semester for a lecture. Our PLEP Podium series brings philosophy to the public, inviting both academic and political speakers to discuss current issues. We also organize summer schools together with the University of Bochum in Germany and the University of Graz in Austria, as well as compact courses, which are conducted in Bern by highly regarded professors from abroad. Semester Fees for the Program: 805 CHF per semester (Swiss Students), 1005 CHF per semester (Students without Swiss Residency) Students have a right to course guidance on a regular basis, ensured by the PLEP Study Advisor and conducted by faculty members.
