About the course


This programme draws on a range of social science disciplines to examine China’s politics, international relations, economic history, society and culture.

Although this programme is based in the Department of Anthropology, it brings together LSE’s considerable multi-disciplinary expertise on China for the benefit of students seeking a comparative perspective of the country. A key feature of the MSc is that China is always considered in a comparative and historical framework. For example, you will be asked to compare and contrast China with India, and with the countries of modern Europe, in addition to other appropriate comparators.

Student Profile(s)

Dia Flores

As a postgraduate student from the United States, I wanted the chance to study abroad in an institution that offered world-class academic rigor located in the heart of a vibrant city. Furthermore, LSE is a leading institution for my course, China in Comparative Perspective, and carries with it the long tradition associated with great scholars who have paved the way for future students and aspiring social scientists.

Studying in London also presents many opportunities for exploring the rest of the UK, Europe, and even North Africa. Its proximity to other neighbouring global cities makes it a convenient portal for a quick break to nearby destinations. However, my favourite part about LSE is the opportunity to be immersed in thinking and scholarly pursuits amongst experts and professionals in their fields of study. I also enjoy the numerous opportunities to see world leaders who come to LSE to speak about their country's goals and initiatives.
