Overview

Examine the fundamental choices we make as part of our common lives together. Draw from empirical findings and first principles to explore questions surrounding human rights, fairness, wealth distribution, the treatment of minority groups, theories of criminal justice, the role of government, and individual freedom versus collective action. This is a practical and socially engaged discipline that enhances decision-making in areas such as politics and government, law and public policy, and the humanities.
