    I am having a dilemma between PPE and "Economics and Politics" at the University of Essex. I love politics and really like economics, in particular macroeconomics, political economy etc. I also like philosophy, especially ethics and political philosophy, but I am worried that since I will be less focused on my politics and economics courses which might be of bigger importance, if I choose PPE.

    Also, I am wondering whether Economics and Politics seems as a more clear degree for future employment.

    What do you guys think?

    From a rather cynical perspective, and given Essex's reputation, i would advise you do as much economics as possible to appeal to employers.
