With the Philosophy, Politics & Economics BA (PPE) at NCH, you can choose one of Politics, Philosophy or Economics as your major, and will study the other two as joint minors. The central aim of our PPE programme is to increase your understanding of, and ability to engage with, central questions, arguments, and texts in Philosophy, Politics and Economics, and to provide a lively sense of interrelations between these subjects.

Assessment methods

The Philosophy, Politics & Economics programme, with Philosophy as your major, consists of two courses in Philosophy and one course in each of Politics and Economics in each year of study.
