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.

Entry requirements

Masters in Research (MRes): Students will normally be expected to hold at least a second-class BA (Hons) or BSc (Hons) in History or a relevant humanities or social science subject. Mature students without such qualification, but with measurable professional experience (e.g. museum professionals or teachers), will be invited to interview and maybe required to complete a mature entry task to support their application. The latter will be in the form of a short practice essay (1500 words) and a CV-portfolio demonstrating their recent relevant experience.
