Why I chose the Department of Social Policy at the LSE 

The first-year PhD cohort at the LSE’s Department of Social Policy includes students in the Social Policy and the Demography/Population Studies programmes. In a series of blog posts, they discuss why they chose these programmes, and the pros and cons of being in a multidisciplinary department. They demonstrate the wide variety of research topics the department accommodates, and the intellectual, practical, and personal factors that contribute to choosing to study here. This may prove useful for future students who might be deciding whether a research degree at the LSE’s Social Policy department might be right for them, too.
