Important breakthroughs in social sciences and the humanities are often achieved at interdisciplinary crossings, and this PPE-style programme deepens students’ knowledge and understanding of political science, economics, and philosophy.
A widening network of the programmes developing the pattern and purpose of Oxford PPEs "Philosophy, Politics and Economics", or alternatively "Politics, Economics and Philosophy" is an educational response to such social demand.
Students come from diverse academic backgrounds, ranging from mathematics to the social sciences. During the programme, they broaden their philosophical outlooks and develop strong critical thinking and social communication skills through courses that emphasize theory, methodology, and analysis.
Graduates possess strong strategic decision-making skills and are able to synthesize specific analyses within broad intellectual overviews. Equipped with invaluable leadership and problem-solving skills, they are well prepared for successful careers working for government agencies, non-governmental organizations, research centers, and leading business corporations.
Student profile: Recent university graduates with a solid background in quantitative methods (mathematics, econometrics, computer modelling, etc.) striving to apply that knowledge to the most pressing social and economic problems, as well as young philosophers and social theorists concerned with gaps and controversies in contemporary social sciences.
Theory and Methodology in Political Science and Economics, Intellectual History, Data Analysis in the Social Sciences, State and Economy, Strategies of Economic Development, Global Governance, Social Change, Comparative Analytical Philosophy, Political Ethics and Social Justice, Political Forecasting and Risk Analysis
