[+] A Message from the Course Director

Welcome to a global programme.

Studying on one of the programmes listed could change your life in many ways. Not only can it improve your career prospects, it can also encourage you to think critically and creatively and increase your understanding of how and why modern societies, institutions and economic systems function in the way they do. LSE's motto is rerum cognoscere causas: to understand the causes of things. You can only find out the causes of things by asking questions-our programmes will help you to think about why things are the way they are. Though extremely rewarding, studying social science is very demanding and requires a major commitment on your part. Many students achieve outstanding results and we are very proud of their success.

Our programmes provide an excellent foundation for a wide variety of careers ranging from accounting, banking and information systems to the media, civil service and journalism. All of the programmes can act as a stepping stone to further study at undergraduate and Masters level.

We hope you enjoy looking through the programmes on offer and we look forward to welcoming you.
