Philosophy, Politics & Economics

Philosophy, Politics & Economics

Why Catz?

  • Part of what is special about St Catherine’s follows naturally from the interests of the teaching Fellows:
  • Professor Fawcett specializes in International Relations-based subjects including international history, the international politics of developing countries (particularly the Middle East) and regional institutions.
  • Professor Koralus specializes on the intersection of philosophy and the cognitive sciences. He works on the nature of the human capacity for reasoning and decision making. His research aims to improve our understanding of how the same cognitive equipment that is prone to fallacious reasoning can make it possible to learn the kind of correct reasoning required for science and philosophy.
  • The College is located next door to the Departments of Economics and of Politics & International Relations. The Social Science Library is also next door, which is a convenient place to work and contains all the books and journals that students of Politics and Economics might need in the course of their undergraduate career. The Faculty of Philosophy is slightly further away but still within easy walking distance of the College.
  • St Catherine’s has one of the larger college libraries in the university, a convenient place to work as well as borrow books, open until midnight during term.
  • The College also has a thriving community of graduates working in economics, politics and other related subjects.

Number of places usually available at St Catherine's: 8
