About

This China in Comparative Perspective programme from London School of Economics and Political Science draws on a range of social science disciplines to examine China’s politics, international relations, economic history, society and culture from a variety of perspectives. 

Overview

Overview

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.

This China in Comparative Perspective programme from London School of Economics and Political Science is an ideal preparation if you have career interests related to China, in business, government, or cultural exchange. It also provides a strong foundation for further research at PhD level in anthropology, economic history, government, international relations or social policy.

Careers

The programme is good preparation for research work in an academic discipline, but is also appropriate for those with career interests related to China and East Asia, for example, in business, culture, or government. Graduates of this programme have chosen a variety of careers, including as analysts, consultants, journalists, and government officials.

Programme Structure

Course Overview:

  • The compulsory course is complemented by an optional full unit course, or two half units, from a selection in anthropology, economic history, government, international relations and social policy. 
  • A further optional full unit course, or two half units, can be chosen from a broader range, many of them including China and comparisons. Following examinations in these three units in June, you will write a dissertation of not more than 10,000 words on an approved topic of your choice.
