Beginning next fall, MacMurray College will have three additional majors that students will be able to pursue. The College is bringing back chemistry and elementary education majors, and also adding PPE, philosophy, political science and economics.

With chemistry, Rodgers said that the college is “reinstating a major that has a long history of producing graduates who have gone on to very successful and productive work lives.” 

PPE is an internationally recognized interdisciplinary degree that analyzes the structure, philosophical and economic principles of modern society.
