MSc Social Research Methods choices

All MSc programmes at LSE expect applicants to have achieved a 2.1 or equivalent in their first degree. In some cases relevant work experience can be taken into account. Please see the subject options for the MSc Social Research Methods at the Graduate Admissions and make your choice.  

Please Note:  Our MScs are combined under one code, LT31, for which there are ten options: Social Policy, Sociology, Social Psychology, Philosophy, Statistics, Government, Decision and Policy Sciences, Development Studies, Management and Population.  Please indicate which one (or two) you are interested in in your personal statement. This is just an indication - your choice can always be changed at the start of the course if another one should prove more suitable.
