Course summary

Some of the most pressing problems of today such as climate change, the refugee crisis, poverty, and international justice are best understood by taking up different perspectives. PPE at Warwick offers exciting opportunities for excellent students to explore these important issues, drawing on insights from philosophy, politics and economics. PPE is an ideal choice if you are fascinated by current affairs and want to gain a broad and rounded understanding of the world around you. Deepen your understanding of why and how governing institutions and big businesses make decisions, how the consequences of these actions influence our world and impact on our futures, and what would make for a better and more just society. After building solid foundations in each of the three subjects in your first year, you then have the flexibility to tailor your module choices to suit your own interests. This allows you to graduate with either a BA or a BSc. Your enthusiasm for the three interconnected disciplines will be rewarded with teaching from excellent lecturers who are equally enthusiastic about their topics. Our world-leading researchers will teach you a diverse range of modules from within our three large and highly-ranked departments. We offer one of the largest and most international PPE programmes in the UK. You will learn alongside students from many backgrounds and cultures. You can share different insights and perspectives on the topics you cover at the intersections of the three subjects. You also have the opportunity to apply to spend a year abroad with one of our international partners. You can also apply to take a work placement.
