Following the creation of new undergraduate and masters programs last year, the International History department announced a new MSc on 20 November, focusing on International and Asian History. Applications for 2020/2021 are now open. 

In order to recognise its expertise in the field of social sciences, LSE has been continuously diversifying courses. The new masters program will offer the possibility for students to specialise in any aspect of the region while producing a dissertation with an Asian focus from the 16th century onwards. 

The program description reads that the new MSc will be valuable “for our understanding of individual countries in Asia, as well as for global flows and interactions.” Students choosing to study International and Asian history will be able to choose from a large variety of specialist courses from the International History Department as well as the Departments of Economic History, Geography, International Development, Government, and Anthropology.

LSE has also been expanding the breadth of its undergraduate courses in the social sciences. Just this year, a joint BSc in International Relations and Mandarin was inaugurated. Students now have the possibility to combine linguistic proficiency in Mandarin to the discipline of International Relations, while analysing the country’s political role and learning its language. Students will also have the opportunity to hone their linguistic skills by participating in an exchange program, studying abroad at Fudan University in Shanghai. A BSc in Language, Culture and Society has also recently seen the day and is now available to students at LSE.
