Course content

Global history is emerging as one of the most exciting fields of historical study. Our MA in Global and Imperial History is ideal for anyone interested in understanding how the legacies of imperialism and post colonialism have shaped the world we live in.

Our innovative MA in Global and Imperial History offers global, imperial and postcolonial perspectives on the making of the modern world. You will question general assumptions about the forces of globalisation and learn how to understand these in terms of long-running historical processes.

This is an interdisciplinary MA, with teaching that draws on both the School of History's world class academics, and those throughout the faculty. There are module options on offer from the Schools of English, Geography and Politics and International Relations.
