Philosophy, Politics and Economics with a Placement Year - University of East Anglia

**About This Course** By combining the study of philosophy, politics and economics you can ask how things should be, why they are as they are, and how to change them for the better. Offered across the School of Economics and the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies, you will gain high-level training in economic science while exploring political and philosophical approaches to understanding human behaviour. If you're looking for a programme that combines the ideological with the practical, and equips you with excellent skills in research, communication and decision-making you could use across any number of careers, this is for you. On this course you'll typically spend between 9-12 months of your third year in a full-time placement, gaining invaluable working experience and employability skills in a relevant area of your choice. Although you will be expected to secure your own work placement, dedicated staff within the School and the Careers Service will support and assist you throughout the process of searching, applying for, and ultimately gaining a position. Furthermore, support will also be provided whilst you are on placement and when you return to complete your studies in your fourth (final) year. Placements are just one aspect of work-based opportunities that are available to our students. Over the last few years several of our students have secured internships during their studies at top companies and organisations including EY, Government Economic Services, Handelsbanken, ONS, Willis Towers Watson and many others. **Overview** The BA Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) at UEA will give you the chance to pursue a spectrum of interests within a single degree programme. You'll learn to analyse a given economic, political or social problem using not only economic tools and concepts, but also those from political science and philosophy, applying this multifaceted approach to creating new insights. You'll learn about the core areas of economics, as well as studying philosophical topics such as scepticism, freedom and morality, and exploring social and political values such as equality and solidarity. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
