The three undergraduate degree programmes offered by the Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method allow students to take courses in ethics, metaphysics, logic, epistemology, political philosophy and philosophy of science. The BSc Philosophy and Economics and BSc Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) programmes also investigate economic issues and deliver a combined philosophical and economic analysis of public policy, including the moral limits of markets. Unlike other PPE degrees, this is a four year degree programme where all three subjects are given equal weighting and all are studied for at least the first three years of the degree. PPE students will undertake a Capstone and Research Project in their final year, working on an applied public policy project for a client organisation and producing a research paper.
