A bachelor’s degree can be obtained after students successfully complete approximately 120 credit hours of both generalized core classes and major-specific courses. This degree typically takes eight semesters to complete with a full-time schedule and helps provide students with the skills necessary for their chosen career fields.

What is a Bachelor in PPE? PPE is short for politics, philosophy and economics, three rather specific areas that interact closely with one another. This program asks students to study each of these disciplines to some extent but will typically involve students choosing one of the three options as a major after a certain period of time. Students usually start out learning basic themes and methods involved in each area of study. Then, they can begin building a concrete, marketable skill set through courses such as political science studies, diplomacy and conflict resolution. The final courses depend on which of the three routes participants decide to take.

Students may expect to hone their communication skills to a fine point during their studies in this field, which can help them connect with others more effectively both at home and in the workplace. Conflict resolution skills and a knowledge of community politics also serve to boost both home life and career advancement.

The cost associated with pursuing this degree will vary depending on which institution a student chooses to attend. It’s advisable for students to research the cost of courses in different universities and host countries before making their final decisions on where to attend.

Because this is such a varied field of study, it stands to reason that students who complete their degree programs may encounter a wide variety of employment opportunities upon entering the workforce. Product manager, data scientist and entrepreneur are all positions holders of this degree may want to consider Graduates may also qualify for jobs in social work, advertising, teaching, law, journalism and broadcasting, banking and finance, politics and accountancy.

Online courses, international learning experiences and traditional local classes are all possibilities for modern students. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
