BA (Hons) Philosophy, Politics and Economics

University of Liverpool

This degree provides the opportunity to master the overlap of these three disciplines, to come to grips with some of their specialisms, to attain a very thorough grounding in mathematical economics, and to develop skills in identifying and evaluating the principles and values that underlie debates. The combination is highly sought after by employers, who appreciate the breadth of knowledge and variety of skills that it provides.

Year one will comprise entirely of compulsory modules: four from Economics, and two each from Philosophy and Politics. In year two, you will take compulsory modules in Economics, one compulsory Philosophy module, and choose from a range of Philosophy and Politics options, which will give you some flexibility in the direction of your studies. For your final year, you will choose between a PPE-focused work placement or dissertation, and then optional modules from each of the three subjects.

Year in Industry

This programme can also be studied over four years, with the third year spent on a relevant, salaried work placement (UCAS code: L0V1). Visit the BA Philosophy, Politics and Economics with a Year in Industry course page for further information.
