What is Philosophy, Politics and Law (PPL)?

This course is for students who wish to explore relationships between a functioning society and how political and legal systems are structured and operate, as well as the philosophical origins and basis for law. You will explore concepts such as justice, freedom, morals, and democracy, as well as the formulation and implementation of law and policy across the world.

You’ll be taught jointly by the Departments of Politics and International Studies, and Philosophy and the School of Law, each of which is ranked highly in UK league tables and has a strong international reputation. On this integrated programme students can focus equally on the three subjects of politics, philosophy and law and will also explore the relationship between these.
