Alumna 2015

I have long thought philosophy has much to offer for the social sciences, and I applied for the Research Master in Philosophy and Economics hoping to work with students and researchers who felt the same way. The programme more than lived up to my expectations. I learned how to write papers and give talks that employ rigorous philosophical argumentation to address topical social scientific problems. The programme prepared me very well for my PhD research, in which I continue to explore the fascinating questions that I first encountered while being part of the supportive EIPE community.

Before: Bachelor's Degree in Social Science, University of Helsinki
