University Studies 1

January 13, 2017

Spaces available: University Studies 1 (2 P/NP units).

What is University Studies 1? Well, it’s basically your guide on how to successfully navigate UCI. We are going to set you up for success not only for this quarter, but also, for the remainder of your first year and beyond. How so? Well, if any of the questions below have crossed your mind, we will be discussing them in class:

  • What majors does UCI offer, and how can I declare?
  • How can I double major or minor?
  • What do I need to do to graduate from UCI?
  • How on earth am I going to learn to manage my time and assignments?
  • Which campus resources can I take advantage of to help me ace my courses?
  • What strategies can I use for studying and test-taking?
  • How can I study abroad, write a resume, and participate in research?
  • How can I perform better this quarter than I did Fall quarter?

Also, one of the perks of this course is that the discussion sections are taught by junior and senior students, so you will have an upper-division student mentor looking out for you and sharing tips from a student perspective.

Be sure to enroll into both the lecture on Wednesdays from 4pm-4:50pm (87500) and a discussion. If you have any questions, email Anthony Bates (atbates@uci.edu).


Interdisciplinary 4+1 Master’s Program

January 12, 2017

All CHP juniors who are majoring in philosophy, political science, or economics are invited to apply for UCI’s new Master’s Program in Philosophy, Political Science, and Economics (PPE).  This program, which was developed by some of the top faculty at UC Irvine, including Social Science Core instructor Jeffrey Barrett, will allow students to complete both a Bachelor’s Degree AND a Master’s Degree in just five years, total.  (This is known as a 4+1 M.A.)

Housed in the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science, PPE aims at providing students with a broad yet thorough education in the three constitutive fields.  The program’s objective is to train individuals to critically evaluate individual and collective decision-making and public policy.  Philosophy equips students with tools to reason rigorously and facilitates ethical reflection.  Economics provides tools for evaluating individual and collective decision-making.  And Political Science provides an understanding of the real contexts in which ethical and economic principles must be applied.  Thus the three disciplines inherent in PPE are mutually supportive and a background in each is necessary for an individual to gain a robust understanding of social phenomena.

The 4+1 M.A. in PPE may be of considerable interest to students interested in obtaining additional education focused on ethics, logic, decision-making, and public policy before applying to law school or pursuing a career in public service.

For questions, please contact Simon Huttegger shuttegg@uci.edu, the director of the program.  Professor Huttegger will meet with CHP students individually to discuss course planning, etc.

Faculty affiliated with the 4+1 M.A. in PPE from the Departments of Economics, Logic and Philosophy of Science, Philosophy, and Political Science include:

Jeffrey Barrett (Logic and Philosophy of Science) Jean Paul Carvalho (Economics) Simone Chambers (Department of Political Science) Margaret Gilbert (Department of Philosophy) Bernard Grofman (Department of Political Science) Simon Huttegger (Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science) Aaron James (Department of Philosophy) Michael McBride (Department of Economics) Cailin O’Connor (Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science) Donald Saari (Department of Economics) Stergios Skaperdas (Department of Economics) Brian Skyrms (Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science) Charles Anthony Smith (Department of Political Science) Keith Topper (Department of Political Science) Kai Wehmeier (Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science)

The application deadline this year is March 3, 2017. For more information, check the program’s website.
