Master’s Programme 'Politics. Economics. Philosophy'

The Master’s programme is lead by a unified ‘trio’ of disciplines: political science, economics and philosophy. This is no coincidence. Along with the trend towards deeper specialization and pragmatism strongly represented in current higher education systems, the opposite countervailing trend towards knowledge integration is no less evident and tends to strengthen over time. This trend is fueled by the understanding that important breakthroughs in the social sciences and humanities are often achieved at interdisciplinary crossings, and that divided disciplinary knowledge is unfit to face most challenges presented by the contemporary world. Demand for specialists capable of strategic thinking, prepared to cope with complex problems, and trained to work within interdisciplinary and/or international teams is becoming more and more imperative.  A widening network of programmes developing the pattern and purpose of Oxford PPEs ‘Philosophy, Politics and Economics’, or alternatively ‘Politics, Economics and Philosophy’ is an educational response to such social demand.
