I took the MSc Philosophy of the Social Sciences at LSE in 2009/10 and I must say that I really enjoyed it. My class was full of inspiring fellow students and the relationship with the teachers was very good. Besides reading a lot of the giants’ works in philosophy, the course itself is very good to train one’s analytical […]

Three activities have taken up most of my time since I finished the MSc program in Philosophy and Public Policy: working as a journalist, doing research for the Icelandic Parliament’s Special Investigation Commission, and preparing PhD applications. The MSc degree has, I believe, helped me with all these activities. Firstly, the degree gave me a valuable opportunity […]

I completed the MSc in Philosophy and Public Policy in September 2009 after two years of part-time enrollment. I was working full-time in addition to the program, and although it was demanding, the professors and the department were extremely flexible with me. Even though the hours were pretty consistent from one semester to another, the program started […]

Studying at LSE was a great experience because you get to develop your analytical skills and equally importantly your ability to present your own opinions in a supportive an intelectually stimpulating environment.

There was much in the content of the MSc that could be directly applied to the work that I do in South Africa. In the carbon sphere, the lectures on environmental policy and on rational choice theory helped in moulding my thinking on these issues; in the HIV-prevention sphere, where I work for a campaign that is […]

Mårten Lewander writes, ‘I attended the MSc in Economics and Philosophy during 08/09. My goal when applying to LSE was to give myself a chance to really indulge in the philosophical issues surrounding economics, such as those relating to normative theories of distribution. I also wanted to sharpen my previous knowledge of economics without necessarily having to […]
