About the MSc programme

With a deep and rigorous programme of coursework and research in the Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method, the MSc Philosophy of Science explores both general questions about the nature of science and specific foundational issues related to the individual sciences.

This programme is primarily designed to be accessible and stimulating for two main audiences: those who have studied science as undergraduates and would now like to study the philosophical foundations and methodology of science in depth, and those who have studied philosophy and would now like to delve deeper into the philosophy of science.

During the course of the programme, you will take either Philosophy of Science or Evidence and Policy, plus an extra elective course, where you will choose courses from a range of philosophy options. In addition, you will take part in the non-assessed dissertation seminar, which will prepare you to complete your 10,000 word dissertation.

This MSc programme is based in the Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method, which has come to occupy a leading place as a world-class centre for teaching and research in philosophy of science, moral and political philosophy, and decision theory and social choice. Along with the closely related Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science, it enjoys an international reputation for its cutting-edge research, bustling seminar series and distinguished faculty and visitors. The Department was rated #8 globally in the 2018 QS World University Rankings by Subject, and the 2017 Guardian University Guide placed LSE Philosophy at number 5 in the country with a score of 84.2/100.
