A degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics gives students a range of specialist skills for working in the political field. These skills can open up opportunities to work in local and national government and in European and global politics. Furthermore, institutions that need to interact with local, national and international government find the knowledge of PPE graduates invaluable, allowing for careers paths ranging from journalism or business to working for international NGOs or think-tanks. Students also learn a wide range of transferable skills that employers value highly. These include critical thinking, gathering and analysing evidence, communication and IT skills, cultural awareness, collaboration and teamwork.
