About this MSc programme
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.
This programme 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.
Department of Anthropology
