About Us

Pol­i­tics, Phi­los­o­phy and Pub­lic Affairs (PPPA) is a Division within Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at the University of Washington Tacoma.  We pro­vide inno­v­a­tive pro­grams of study exploring social chal­lenges and their solutions. Through intern­ships, study abroad oppor­tu­ni­ties, sem­i­nars, and field work, stu­dents gain prac­ti­cal expe­ri­ence with decision-making and careers at the local, state, national, and global level.  A fac­ulty of active schol­ars, we are com­mit­ted to under­grad­u­ate students, and offer them small classes, indi­vid­u­al­ized intern­ships, and many opportunities for civic engagement.
