    I'm currently doing Philosophy and Politics at uni and was wondering is it better to change to PPE instead.t I know nothing about economics, but since I will only a few modules in it, I don't think it would matter too much.

    Tbh I only want to change it to increase my employability. However, I need advice whether I'm correct in thinking PPE is better than PP in the view of employers.

    These are reasons enough not to switch. You are not correct in thinking PPE is more employable than PP. The only employers who'd care are ones that are specifically looking for graduates with expertise in economics, something you wouldn't have if you "only did a few modules" in it.

    Surely if I wanted to do something like accounting, wouldn't they prefer PPE, even if I wasn't an expert in economics. It is better recognised, therefore prefered?
    Although it is ideal if employers didn't judge by degree but let's be real some have a better reputation right?

    Nope, they wouldn't. Languages is a very respected degree, you can pretty much do anything with it that doesn't require specialist scientific knowledge. I suggest you do a LinkedIn search to see what graduates of languages can do.
