Programme specification:

The programme will provide a very high quality education in the three disciplines of Philosophy, Politics and Economics to students well equipped intellectually to make the most of a programme which is demanding, rigorous and flexible. Students on the programme will be taught for a proportion of their first year as a cohort. This takes special account of their status as students on a given programme. It is intended that students on the programme will be able to take an interdisciplinary approach to their final year project as the culmination of their degree programme.

The programme has high entry requirements and thereby represents an attempt by the School and its partners to attract students of high intellectual calibre to undertake a demanding course of study.
