Global and Imperial History
Global history is emerging as one of the most exciting fields of historical study. Our MA in Global and Imperial History is ideal for anyone interested in understanding how the legacies of imperialism and post colonialism have shaped the world we live in. Our innovative MA offers global, imperial and postcolonial perspectives on the making of the modern world. Students will question general assumptions about the forces of globalisation and learn how to understand these in terms of long-running historical processes. This is an interdisciplinary MA, with teaching that draws on both the School of History's academics, and those throughout the faculty. There are module options on offer from the Schools of English, Geography and Politics and International Relations.
An upper 2nd class Honours undergraduate degree or higher in history or relevant humanities subject (or overseas equivalent). Applications from mature students are welcomed.
You will take 3 modules, including the core module 'global connections, local contexts'. Optional modules may include: readings in global history; race, resistance and decolonization; empire and global history in the 20th century; islam is the solution: the history of modern islamism; sub-saharan africa: states and societies (taught by the school of politics and international relations); cities, space and power (taught by the school of geography); empire, race and immigration (taught by the school of geography).
Students produce an essay of 4,000 words for the core module, and one essay of 4,000 words for each of the optional modules. They will also complete a 15,000-word research dissertation.
