Course summary

The MSc International and Asian History given by the Department of International History is designed for those who wish to study Asia in a regional perspective, from the 16th century onwards. This is of value for our understanding of individual countries in Asia, as well as for global flows and interactions. You will be able to choose from a wide range of specialist courses from the International History Department as well as the Departments of Economic History, Geography, International Development, Government, and Anthropology. You will engage at an advanced level with the latest academic research in the field, and undertake your own research-based dissertation with an Asian focus.

Students develop highly transferable skills valued by employers and go on to work in the foreign service, the EU, political think tanks, risk assessment, journalism or the NGO sector, or stay on to take a research degree. LSE History graduates find employment in almost any job sector due to the wide range of transferable skills developed during their studies. Very few people with a degree in History go on to work as historians, but students with a degree in International History have many skills that are in high demand today.
