PPE Students,

Thank you for your interest in the fall 2024 PPE Capstone Seminar!

As you’ve likely seen on ConnectCarolina, the four sections we will offer in the spring are:

PHIL/POLI/ECON 698.001 – Philosophy, Politics, and Economics: Capstone Course
Instructor: Tom Dougherty. This course meets TTH 2:00 PM-3:15 PM in PE 2066.

PHIL/POLI/ECON 698.002 – Philosophy, Politics, and Economics: Capstone Course
Instructor: Zev Berger. This course meets MW 3:35 PM-4:50 PM in DE 403.

PHIL/POLI/ECON 698.003 – Philosophy, Politics, and Economics: Capstone Course
Instructor:  Gerard Rothfus. This course meets TTH 3:30 – 4:45 PM in PE 2066.

PHIL/POLI/ECON 698.004 – Philosophy, Politics, and Economics: Capstone Course
Instructor: Gerard Rothfus. This course meets MW 4:40 PM-5:55 PM in HN 112.

These courses are prioritized for graduating seniors. We understand that it is often convenient to complete an academic minor before senior year, but the PPE Minor is intentionally structured in this way to provide you with the best PPE Capstone experience possible. Since this is currently being requested in the spring 2024 semester, students will be considered “eligible” seniors only if projected to graduate in fall 2024 or spring/summer 2025. We will, however, consider special circumstances for those studying abroad who need to complete the Capstone early and successfully to graduate.

As you may have realized, you will not be able to register yourself for this class. To be enrolled, please use our official enrollment request form below.

Students who are granted a seat in the capstone course will be issued a unique permission number they can use to enroll themselves in the course when their registration window is open. Permission numbers will be distributed to students prior to when registration begins.

All enrollment will be done on a first-come, first-served basis, so don’t wait too long to decide! Once again, this course is only open to PPE minors who need the Capstone class to graduate between fall 2024-spring/summer 2025. We will enroll eligible students in the order in which they have completed the  enrollment request form (below) until all sections are full or all students have been accommodated.

Please let us know if you have any questions by emailing us at
