Pursuing the Philosophy of Science MSc is a highly rewarding experience. The curriculum covers a fantastically wide range of areas. This allows you to tailor the programme to suit your own interests. For the mathematically inclined, there is ‘Set Theory and Further Logic’ and ‘Rationality and Choice’; for those interested in the natural sciences, there is ‘Einstein for Everyone’ […]

All things considered, this MSc has achieved nothing short of a miracle. You will be exposed to to some of the deepest questions unearthed in scientific pursuit.

Coming from law, I embarked on a MSc in Philosophy of Science with no background in either of these disciplines, neither philosophy nor science. It is thanks to the extraordinary dedication and outstanding competence of LSE’s professors and the teaching in a small class of brilliant and enthusiastic students that this adventure of mine was not only a success […]

Many things can be said about the London School of Economics, as well as concerning its Master in Philosophy of Science: the outstanding quality of lectures and seminars, the competence of professors and researchers, the opportunity to attend conferences held by the best scholars from all over the world, the undeniable opportunities for what concerns students’ academic or professional […]

My time at the LSE was a fantastic experience. For someone like me, who has always been interested in science and philosophy, the MSc Philosophy of Science programme was superb. The curriculum allows you to tackle issues from several levels of abstraction – from general questions such as whether our best scientific theories represent reality to whether a specific […]

Studying for the MSc in Philosophy of Science is the best thing I’ve ever done. My experience was life changing. The ideas covered in some of the modules that I took, such as PH400 Philosophy of Science, PH430 Einstein for Everyone, PH427 Genes, Brains & Society, are deep and important. In my view, I may only come to realise […]

I would strongly recommend anyone to pursue a MSc in Philosophy of Science at the LSE. The intellectual challenge in combination with brilliant professors and classmates contributed to making this an experience for life. Worth to note is also that I found this degree tremendously useful when applying for jobs in the tech industry later on. A strong foundation […]

My time at LSE was one of the best experiences I’ve had. Not only was I introduced to a field of study which is now my life passion, but since graduating I have also taken up a career in an area which allows me to put my studies into practice on a daily basis.

I learned a lot during my MSc Philosophy of Science at the LSE. At my arrival, I knew I had the philosophical, creative intuition that is so important to come up with new and challenging ideas. However, my reasoning was not firm enough to really hit the nail on the head. I needed a lot of words to say […]

Pursuing this MSc at the LSE is an excellent experience. There is a fair division between taught courses and a research project, leading to your dissertation. This gives students the opportunity to acquire new or deepen existing knowledge in a field as well as to dip into the fascinating experience of developing your own ideas and approaches to tackle […]
