Arts of Asia and Africa

This programme draws on courses across the School of Arts, permitting student to specialise in, for example: popular music and film in the Middle East; art, archaeology and music of the Silk Road; music, media and development in Africa; students must take 1 course from at least 2 of the constituent departments/centre.

Entry requirements

The normal qualification for admission to the MA programme is an upper 2nd Class Honours degree. Other qualifications, however, may be acceptable and the Department welcomes mature students. While knowledge of a relevant Asian or African language is not a requirement, for some courses it is an advantage for admission (see individual course descriptions for details). It is possible to include an element of language training within the MA programme by taking an Asian or African language as one of the 2 minor courses. This option may be particularly desirable for those intending to progress to the PhD, who do not already have the necessary language skills.

Assessment methods

Students write a supervised dissertation on a relevant topic.
