Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) originated from the University of Oxford in 1920s. Since then, over 100 PPE programmes have been developed at leading universities in the US, the UK and beyond.
HSUHK is the first and only university offering PPE Programme in Hong Kong. Compared to other programmes that concentrate solely on Philosophy, Politics or Economics, BSS-PPE serves as a unique interdisciplinary study programme that emphasizes generalist training and aims to equip students with capacities and skills that are applicable in a variety of careers. As much as encouraging students’ intellectual development with the study of major social, political and philosophical thoughts, PPE is way more than a summation of 3 independent disciplines.
