What is the LSE100 timetable?

While the topics of the five-week modules are broad-ranging, the classes follow a similar format aimed at developing an understanding of the core methodological concepts of evidence, explanation and theory and at building and reinforcing critical research and communication skills. The lectures and classes are carefully designed to be challenging but, at the same time, accessible to students from all backgrounds and disciplines.

To keep your overall workload manageable, the first half of the course is self-contained in the Lent term, with classes following lectures in the same week and all work for the year completed by the end of term. The second half of the course is in Michaelmas term of the following session.

Further information is available in the LSE100 brochure and LSE staff and students can explore the LSE100 Moodle site (LSE username required).

The Course Office would be pleased to receive suggestions for future LSE100 modules.
