Even before starting the MSc in Philosophy of Science I knew I wanted to do a PhD in Philosophy at LSE. The master programme offered me the right environment to develop the necessary skills for making a successful application to a PhD programme and the intellectual background and confidence for embarking on such a project. The programme offers a wide variety of options and I combined courses in philosophy of science with courses in policy and rational choice theory. All courses I took were designed to suit students at all levels: I was just as satisfied of my philosophy of science course – which covered topics which were already familiar to me – as I was of my policy course – which was the first of its kind I was taking. All in all, the MSc in Philosophy of Science was a very enjoyable experience in my academic and personal life and I strongly recommend it.
