History of Africa and the African Diaspora

The MRes in the History of Africa and the African Diaspora is an on-line postgraduate programme of study which can be undertaken in a one-year (full-time) or two-year (part-time) mode. The degree provides a taught component which is preparatory to an extensive programme of research and the writing of a dissertation. The aim of the programme is to give students specialized teaching and independent research practice, supported by tutorial guidance, in the field of Africa and the African diaspora. It is the only Master's programme in Britain to provide such a focus and one of the few anywhere in the world. It invites students to study the relationship between the history of Africa and its diaspora in the modern world, and especially to re-evaluate how hitherto histories of Britain and other countries have marginalized the study of the African diaspora. It encourages students to plan and undertake their own historical research in this important field, and is designed for those who have already successfully completed an undergraduate degree in History or a related field, or those who can demonstrate a particular interest in, and aptitude for, the study of history - for example, graduates employed as teachers.
