Course summary

The BSc Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) four year programme offers rigorous training in all three disciplines, as well as innovative interdisciplinary teaching and study. Unlike most other PPE programmes, this programme gives equal weight to all three subjects and has specially designed interdisciplinary courses.

Philosophy addresses challenging foundational questions in many fields, including ethics, political philosophy, and scientific methodology. It also involves training in rigorous argumentation, including formal logic and essay writing. The study of politics involves analyses of the ways in which individuals and groups define and interpret political issues and shape government decisions. It encompasses a broad spectrum of activities relating to public affairs, from elections and bureaucracies to war and terrorism. Economics tackles a large range of problems, from barriers to economic development to international financial crises.

Each of these questions names an issue of central importance in contemporary public debates. Each of them can also be answered satisfactorily only by drawing on knowledge from philosophy, political science and economics. We have put together a programme that delivers not just an excellent education in each subject but also encourages students to develop the integrative thinking skills required to tackle many social and economic issues.
