I chose the MSc in Philosophy of the Social Sciences offered by LSE because I wanted to understand what distinguishes a scientific description of the world from a non-scientific one. The exposure I received to various approaches to scientific explanation in social disciplines such as economics and sociology was more thorough and deep than I could ever have expected.

LSE resources available to students allow inquisitive people to both satisfy their curiosity and to understand the reasons that led various scientific disciplines to evolve in such different ways. As I am now embarking on a research career, the knowledge and methods acquired last year will be invaluable.

My LSE experience gave me so many good memories that I recommend it to everyone who really wants to understand “the causes of things”.
