The Philosophy, Politics & Economics BA (PPE) at NCH offers three separate pathways to the degree. The Politics pathway enables you to study Politics as your major subject, comprising 50% of your undergraduate degree, alongside Philosophy and Economics as joint minors, each of which will form 25% of your degree studies.

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.

The study of politics comprises of politics theory, examining normative questions, and the political science of how government is organised. Likewise, the study of International Relations looks at governance, institution-building and decision-making through an analysis of historical phenomena, economic conditions, diplomatic relations, security and socio-cultural factors.
