The London Interdisciplinary Social Science DTP’s training is delivered through 13 Thematic Pathways, covering five broad strategic research areas: (1) health, well-being and social inclusion; (2) economics and business; (3) language, culture and education; (4) the environment and urban life; and (5) security and governance.
Our 13 thematic pathways are all linked to the ESRC’s priorities, and they take forward two fundamental strategies for developing robust social science training across a heterogeneous, interdisciplinary terrain. You can click on each Pathway in the table below for more details.
