About the MSc programme

The MSc Applicable Mathematics is an innovative programme, drawing together traditional and modern mathematical techniques in a variety of social science contexts.

The programme is offered by the Department of Mathematics, which is internationally recognised for its teaching and research. The Department was submitted jointly to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, with LSE's Department of Statistics: 84% of the research outputs of the two departments were classed as either world-leading or internationally excellent in terms of originality, significance and rigour.

The MSc is designed both for mathematicians who wish to make themselves more marketable by adding some social science aspects to their knowledge and skills base, and for non-mathematicians with strong quantitative backgrounds who wish to add to and improve their understanding of the mathematics behind much of social science.

During the course of the programme, you will be required to complete a dissertations and choose between two core modules, you will also select additional modules from a range of mathematics and social science options. The programme will provide you with an increased knowledge of mathematics, particularly in algorithms, game theory, discrete mathematics, probability and stochastics, and optimisation, in addition to training in appropriate computational methods. Reflecting the world's dependence on computation, you will learn the programming language Java, and how to use it to apply your knowledge to real-world problems.

The skills and knowledge gained over the programme will open up a wide range of potential careers, including finance, business, software development, and industry. It will also provide a solid base for further studies at research level.

Graduate destinations

This programme is ideal preparation for a range of careers in industry, finance, government and research. Graduates of the programme have found employment in companies such as Amazon, BlackRock, Credit Suisse, Facebook, Goldman Sachs, Google, KPMG, National Grid and RBS.
