The PPE Society
The University of Queensland Politics, Philosophy and Economics Society is one of the newest homes for debate and discussion about the world around us. We cater to all students studying PPE at UQ as well as others with an interest in the fields.
Join us for social events, study sessions, networking experiences and unique opportunities to discuss complex issues with a cross-disciplinary focus.
UQPPES was founded by members of the innaugural cohort of PPE students at the University of Queensland in 2017.
Each year we publish The PPE Magazine, featuring pieces submitted by our members and illustrated by students. These pieces, generally articles, are also uploaded to our blog, here. Please contact us at [email protected] if you wish to enquire about featuring in the magazine.
