The School of PPE offers four distinct undergraduate programmes. Each of these programmes includes a particular combination of study, involving Philosophy, Politics and Economics. The programmes are Economics & Philosphy, Economics & Politics, Philosophy & Politics, and PPE. The PPE is the only one of the four programmes to include all three subjects. Within the PPE programme, there are two specific pathways, one specialises in econometrics, the other is more interdisciplinary in character. For students interested in the econometrics pathway, please check out the admissions criteria concerning maths requirements.
