I joined the LSE MSc programme in Philosophy of the Social Sciences because I believed the programme was a unique opportunity to learn how to use philosophical tools to criticise and strengthen economic theory. After graduating I can honestly say that I was right; but I can also add that studying at LSE gave me a lot more than […]
Having read philosophy at the undergraduate level despite my overt scientific inclinations, a Master’s in philosophy of science seemed to be the logical confluence of my two streams of interest. LSE’s MSc Philosophy of Science, with its lofty reputation and long list of eminent faculty members, promised to embody precisely what I was looking for. After arriving at LSE, […]
The master’s program in Philosophy of Science at the LSE provided the philosophical training for me to pivot my academic career from the natural sciences to philosophy of science. After completing a master’s in biochemistry and structural biology, I arrived at the LSE hoping to transition from laboratory research to scientifically-engaged philosophical research. Although I lacked any formal training […]
How my studies went?
I came to the LSE after studying a degree in Political Economy, although my background wasn’t of the sciences, I didn’t feel at a disadvantage at all.
I felt the programme was excellent. I was always tested and felt challenged. From philosophy of science to the philosophy of choice, the detail and the breadth of the work […]
I’ve currently accept the offer to the graduate training program at London-based Financial PR and Investor Relations firm Abchurch Communications. I mainly work with Asian clients who wish to seek investors in London, and to ensure that their Financial PR, Corporate Communications and Investor Relations are accessible to a wider audience. My long term goal is to bring the […]
I thoroughly enjoyed my PPP studies at the LSE. I came from a different background (Literature), but rather than a hindrance, it made the whole experience even more enriching for me. It’s been great to engage in applied philosophical thinking, as it enhanced my analytical skills at the ideal and non-ideal level alike.
I now am a finance trainee for […]
Before moving to London, I studied politics and law and practised as a lawyer in Australia for three and a half years. I chose the MSc in Philosophy and Public Policy because I wanted a stronger applied-philosophical grounding in order to move into a research- and policy-oriented career focused on the design and normative evaluation of public policy and […]
The MSc in Economics and Philosophy changed the way I think about economics, making me a more rigorous and inquisitive researcher. Prior to attending LSE, I had thought of economics as a progressive science, where mathematical models can be used to accurately describe phenomena in the same way they are routinely used in physics or chemistry. I still think […]
I found the MSc Economics and Philosophy degree incredibly challenging, but I firmly believe it was the best choice of degree for me. I learned so much from balancing my quantitative skills with the depth of abstract thought involved in philosophical subjects. Most of all, I was proud of the process of writing my thesis, in which I really […]
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 […]
