About

The Economics and Philosophy programme from London School of Economics and Political Science offers a unique combination of rigorous training in economics together with the opportunity to engage with moral, methodological and foundational questions. 

Overview

Taught jointly by the Department of Economics and the Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method, this thoroughly interdisciplinary programme encourages you to engage constructively with key economic and political issues, whilst allowing you to explore and question their conceptual and theoretical foundations. Questions typically addressed include: What are the moral advantages and disadvantages of market institutions? Can we make interpersonal comparisons of well-being, and if so, how? How do models of economic phenomena relate to the actual social world? What are the assumptions underlying the rational choice model in economics? Can they be normatively justified? Are they descriptively accurate?

You will have access to the wealth of resources available in both the Economics and the Philosophy Departments, including research seminars and colloquia on topics in economics, rational and social choice, scientific evidence and policy-making. You may apply to the LSE Internships programme in Public Policy, Social Issues and Public Affairs, which offers internships to LSE graduate students in key organisations working across the field of public policy, social issues and public affairs.

Careers

The Economics and Philosophy programme from London School of Economics and Political Science offers a good preparation for doctoral research in both economics and philosophy. It also prepares students for careers in financial institutions, and intergovernmental, governmental, and non-governmental organisations, and for employment in such fields as financial and economic journalism and consulting.
