Course summary

Studying politics, philosophy and economics will help you understand the ideas and theories which shape our world. You'll learn how and why these subjects are intrinsically linked, and how they've developed alongside each other. You'll also develop analytical skills to help you evaluate the impact of government policies of programmes. You'll learn how to understand things from multiple perspectives and think creatively about problem solving. Our teaching is informed by real-world events that are happening now, so you'll be using the knowledge and techniques you've learned to tackle current issues. For example, you could examine the impact of government policies aimed at addressing climate change, healthcare, education, and financial crisis. Our strong links with employers mean you'll be equipped with the analytical skills that they look for when you graduate. You'll have the flexibility to specialise in your area of interest. For instance, you could choose to explore modules in international relations, economic history, the philosophy of religion, or macroeconomics. You'll also have the option to specialise in quantitative economics and convert to a BSc Politics, Philosophy and Economics. In the final year, you'll complete a PPE dissertation supported by a dissertation tutor.
