Cities and Cultures
Alongside the focus on the cultural geographies of cities, the course develops social science research skills and methods appropriate for further study in this field.
An upper 2nd Class Honours degree or higher in a humanities or social science subject from a UK university (or an equivalent international qualification) together with 2 supportive references is required; candidates are expected to have good English language abilities and to meet the standard of the IELTS, or equivalent, at a level of 7.0.
Compulsory modules: Geographical thought and practice; introduction to social science research (qualitative methods); introduction to social science research (quantitative methods); option modules: advanced readings in geography; art, performance and the city; empire, race and immigration; cultural geography in practice; cities, space and power.
Assessment on each of the modules is through a variety of coursework assignments ranging from extended essays to book reviews. Students also complete a 15,000-word dissertation. Students are assigned an academic supervisor from the School of Geography at Queen Mary University of London. Their supervisor provides guidance and advice on their dissertation research. Students meet with their supervisor at least 6 times from January through to June in order to ensure that their work is on track for completion.
