Philosophy, Politics and Economics BA Hons
Philosophy, Politics, and Economics, known as PPE, is a joint degree delivered by the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion and the Department of Economics.
You will explore philosophical, economic and political ideas in relation to one another. For example, the study of Philosophy provides a historical background and gives you the opportunity to develop your critical reasoning skills and understanding, which are directly relevant to Politics and Economics.
In Politics, you will examine the history and basis of political ideas and critically reflect upon the nature and activities of political institutions. You will have the chance to learn how political decisions concern, and are influenced by, economic matters. You will also critically engage with a range of economic models and theories.
The first year of your degree is designed to enable you to develop a firm grounding in each of the three disciplines through the core modules: Introduction to Philosophy; Politics in the Modern World, and Principles of Economics.
In your second and third years, you’ll develop your skills and knowledge, choosing from a range of optional modules in the three subject areas. For example Modern Political Thought: Liberty, Theory and Practice; The Ethics of Belief and Ignorance; Managerial Economics, and International Economics.
