This program will equip graduates with versatile skills to address complex and challenging issues drawing on an historical, social, political and economic knowledge base. From year 2, students may choose to specialise in one discipline, earning a major in politics, philosophy or economics. Students who choose not to take a major will instead choose elective courses from all three disciplines.

Note - entry to PPES4202 is restricted to students who have a GPA of 6.25 over their first 24 units of study in the program. Further, students are responsible for finding their own thesis supervisor.
