About

The Philosophy, Politics and Economics course offered at the University of Oxford  was born of the conviction that study of the great modern works of economic, social, political and philosophical thought would have a transformative effect on students’ intellectual lives, and thereby on society at large. 

Overview

This conviction remains as firm today as it was then. As the world has evolved, so has PPE. The Philosophy, Politics and Economics course offered at the University of Oxford  brings together some of the most important approaches to understanding the world around us, developing skills useful for a wide range of careers and activities.

Studying philosophy develops analytical, critical and logical rigour, enabling you to apply these skills to questions concerning how we acquire knowledge or make ethical judgements.

Careers

The careers most commonly chosen by PPE graduates are in banking and finance, politics, journalism and broadcasting, the law, industry, teaching, social work, accountancy, business management, management consultancy, advertising and the many branches of the public services, including the Civil and Diplomatic Services and local government.

Amit was Head of Corporate Partnerships at the British Heart Foundation. He says: ‘PPE encouraged me to be inquisitive, open-minded and analytical, preparing me for a career that has spanned the private, public and charity sectors.’
