Solve the world’s problems in New Zealand’s only PPE programme

The programme studies human behaviour and social phenomena.

It combines:


  • The analytical reasoning of philosophers
  • The social insight of scholars of politics

  • The methodological rigour of economists

Students begin with a grounding course in each of the three core disciplines. Study progresses to small and intellectually intense interdisciplinary seminars and to advanced independent research.
