Why study EPP at Warwick?

Excellent Teaching and Research

Our three departments are internationally renowned for their teaching and research. All three departments have been ranked in the top 100 QS World University Rankings (2021) and the top 20 in The Complete University Guide (2021).

Warwick Economics is ranked 2nd and Philosophy is ranked 4th in the Good University Guide 2022, published by The Times and The Sunday Times. The Psychology department is ranked in the top 10 in The Guardian University Guide 2022 and is 7th in more than 80 UK psychology departments for research outputs (Research Excellence Framework 2014).

Bridging the Disciplines

Throughout the programme you will be encouraged to combine your study of the disciplines and form your own holistic viewpoint. You will go beyond inter-disciplinary learning to cross-disciplinary study, where one discipline is critiqued from the perspective of others.

In your final year you’ll study a co-taught module which is specifically designed to set the three EPP disciplines in interdisciplinary dialogue with each other.

Flexibility to Specialise

The size and scope of the departments mean you’ll have dozens of high-quality optional modules to choose from, while your core modules are carefully designed to provide you with a solid foundation in all three subjects.

In the course of your studies, you will select your own individual pathway, and thereby tailor the programme to your interests and future plans. You can choose to focus on two subjects in more depth or to study all three subjects in equal proportion. Depending on your chosen pathway and modules, you can graduate with either a BA or BSc.

A Vibrant Community

With a community of over 150 members of academic staff across the three EPP departments and students from all over the world, Warwick is a diverse and critically engaging place to study Economics, Psychology and Philosophy. Beyond the classroom, you can access a wealth of activities including societies in each of the three disciplines and subject-related talks, debates, conferences and film screenings. There are also opportunities to expand your experience through study abroad or work placements.
