Why study Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Manchester?

Our degree is a balanced yet flexible course directly informed by current research. You’ll study topics ranging from global money markets to the ethics of killing, and learn rigour in understanding and argument. You’ll have access to the multidisciplinary expertise of more than 100 research-active academic staff and join a vibrant intellectual community.

You’ll learn to assess competing ideas about political events, ideologies and institutions, while developing the ability to evaluate economic policies and getting to grips with deep philosophical questions of metaphysics, ethics and the mind.
