We are delighted to announce that general booking is now open for our first event of the new academic year, One Hundred Years of PPE: a discussion. This virtual event marks one hundred years since the University of Oxford began offering Philosophy, Politics and Economics as a degree subject.
At this event, our distinguished panel will consider the evolution of the degree over the course of its history, examine how well the individual subjects sit alongside each other, and discuss how today's PPE graduates can contribute to the society of the future. There will also be time for questions from the audience, following the panel discussion.
