Our innovative programme offers global, imperial and postcolonial perspectives on the making of the modern world and analyses the forces of globalisation, the global trajectory and dissemination of ideas, the relationship of knowledge to power, and the history of resistance to imperial expansion. It takes an expansive approach to the global history of ideas by examining representations, images, power, and cultural encounters.
This is an interdisciplinary MA, with teaching that draws on both the School of History’s world-class academics, and those throughout the faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.
This programme is ideal for anybody wanting a career with an international aspect, entering fields such as journalism, the civil service, international NGOs and business. Its rigorous intellectual approach will be of particular benefit to those planning to pursue doctoral work, preparatory to an academic career.
