Hello!

I've just started PPE at the University of Nottingham and, somehow, I've only just now realized that there is essentially no flexibility at all in terms of modules (I need more economics)

Long story short, my question would be that of whether PPE has such a prestigious name, at least among employers, that it would be worth it for me to endure the lack of economics during my first two years of the course. If PPE is significantly better regarded than Economics and Politics I would say that I would be ok with going through with it.

Or is it that employers don't look at one's degree title so much as at one's modules?

Any answers would be greatly appreciated; thank you.

Additional rambling:

The very narrow range of choices we do have are in the politics and philosophy schools (and even then just a couple courses). What I would want to specialize on is Economics, and perhaps geopolitics, while I will only be able to do so in the 3rd year.

Even during the second year when I would have 40 free credits to spare I could still only choose philosophy or politics modules which is extremely counter intuitive seeing as how PPE is in the school of economics.



Thank you for your time!

The idea that PPE is far better than Economics and Politics isn't true, but it depends on your degree transcript, your transcript will show what modules you have studied whilst at university
