Programme Curriculum

Most modules in PPE are also major modules for Philosophy, Political Science, or Economics. These keep their normal major coding, for example, “EC2101 Microeconomic Analysis I”, “PS3257 Political Inquiry”. The rest are multidisciplinary modules specially created for PPE. These are indicated by the “PE” coding, and the offering department is marked by the suffix (“P” for Philosophy, “S” for Political Science, and “E” for Economics”). For example, “PE2101P Introduction to Philosophy, Politics, and Economics”, which is offered by the Department of Philosophy.

Every module in PPE is managed by a particular department, including the “PE” modules. Queries about specific modules are thus best addressed to the relevant departments. This includes questions regarding the mapping of exchange modules, as each such module needs to be mapped onto a specific module in the PPE curriculum if it is to count towards the major. In general, students are not allowed to map the following modules without very special reasons: GET1029, PE2101P, PS1101E, PS2249, PS3257, EC1101E, EC2104, EC2101, EC2102, EC3101, and EC3102. In addition, Up to 1 4000-level module may be mapped from a module read while on exchange, subject to the owning department’s approval. For more queries, please approach the relevant department admin; see contact information here.
