What will I learn?

Politics, philosophy and economics (PPE) examines different interdisciplinary perspectives on many of the pressing issues of the modern world. This programme will equip you with the key skills to engage with the political, philosophical and economic debates of the day and to pursue a variety of career paths after graduation. You will gain the necessary frameworks for thinking about political and philosophical issues, combined with the quantitative skills for answering political and economic questions. **Politics** Politics is concerned with the choices that political systems must regularly make, to explain the processes that maintain or change those systems, and to examine the concepts and values used in political analysis. **Philosophy** Philosophy helps you develop analytical rigour and logical reasoning, and addresses questions regarding how we acquire knowledge and make ethical judgements. **Economics** Economics studies the allocation of resources and decision-making by consumers, firms and governments. It is increasingly central to governmental policy making, the conduct of businesses, and the enormous economic transformations throughout the world.

Entry requirements

For students from United States

Minimum entry requirements in the standardised tests are: ACT score of 27 plus two AP scores at 4+ or two SAT subject tests at 650+; SAT score of 1290+ (650+ in Evidence based reading and Writing and 620+ in Math) plus two AP scores at 4+ or two SAT subject tests at 650+; 3 AP scores at 4+; 3 SAT Subject Test scores of 650+; A combination of the AP and SAT, such as 1 AP score at 4+ and 2 SAT Subject Tests at 650+. A combination of AP and SAT Subject tests are acceptable, provided they are in different subjects. For example, AP French and SAT Physics are acceptable as two scores, but AP French and SAT French are only considered once. Students with International Baccalaureate or French Baccalaureate will be considered. The Cambridge Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) Diploma is accepted for entry. The Diploma must include three Cambridge International A Levels achieved with points equivalent to the A Level grade requirements for the programme including required subjects. Many of our degree programmes require that you have some experience of the subject at high school. This means that one or more of your three standardised test scores must include specific subject requirements, such as an AP score or SAT subject test in a certain subject relevant to the degree you are applying to. Please refer the university website for details of the English Language requirements for entry to individual undergraduate degree programmes.

*There may be different IELTS requirements depending on your chosen course.
