Philosophy, Politics and Economics
Philosophy, Politics and Economics has a dedicated website
The degree of Philosophy, Politics and Economics has a separate quota of 45 and all three subjects must be studied together, with a maximum specialisation of eight modules and a minimum of two modules in any one of the three subjects in the final two years (years two and three).
In year one, in addition to the economics core modules Elements of Economics, and Economic Methods, you take a further two core modules in Philosophy, examining Ethics and Values, and Knowledge and Reality, whilst in Politics you must take Ideas and Ideologies, and one further optional module.
In years two and three combined, you must study two core modules looking at the principles of macro and micro economics; either Philosophy of the Sciences or Political Philosophy and one further module in Philosophy; and two modules in Politics. Aside from these, and provided that individual module requirements are met, you can specialise and tailor your choices from a wide selection of optional modules in the three subjects. This gives the degree the flexibility and eclecticism that are its defining characteristics.
In year three, the Dissertation (double module) must be done in one of the three subjects and it must be associated with another third year module of the same subject.
