It offers thorough knowledge of the three core disciplines, and teaches you to apply this in an interdisciplinary way. The small-scale, intensive seminars that are part of our PPE programme take place in our own exclusive class rooms within the John Stuart Mill College, situated at the 4th floor of the main building of VU Amsterdam.
