Politics, Philosophy and Economics

The Politics, Philosophy and Economics (PPE) degree is based on the view that, to understand public phenomena, one must approach them from several disciplinary directions. This degree illuminates how these three areas complement one another:

  • Politics acquaints students with the institutions and processes that produce decisions governing our lives
  • Philosophy develops analytical rigour, the ability to reason logically, critically and ethically
  • Economics helps in understanding government policy and the choices facing businesses, governments and society

Studying PPE at Queen’s has several unique advantages:

  • Studying in Belfast, a regional political and economic capital city, allows for one to interact directly with key decision makers in the area
  • Situated on the island of Ireland, the PPE degree at Queen’s offers a unique international setting
  • Studying Politics, Philosophy, and Economics in a divided society allows one to explore how these subjects work to shape conflict
  • Small class sizes promote the building of close friendships and networks
