Course content

This programme, run jointly with the Government Department, focuses on the phenomenon of imperialism. A core course designed to provide students with a broad knowledge of empires from classical antiquity to the present day, is thus flanked with a wide range of specialist options from the Departments of Government, Economic History, and International History.

Students also develop highly transferable skills valued by employers and go on to work in the foreign service, the EU, political think tanks, risk assessment, journalism, the NGO sector, or stay on to take a research degree.

Students engage at an advanced level with the latest academic research in the field, and undertake their own research based term papers and third term dissertation.
