Entry requirements

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.

Course content

Become a specialist historian in the field of African history and the African Diaspora.

The MRes in the History of Africa and the African Diaspora is a unique and exciting programme, and the first of its kind to be delivered completely online.

You will explore the historical relationships between Africa and its diaspora in the modern period by conducting your own supervised research in this important field.

You will be encouraged to critically re-evaluate existing narratives that have marginalised the study of the African diaspora, especially in Britain, and often totally separated the history of Africa from that of its diaspora.

On this course you will:

  • Study a unique and rewarding subject matter, exploring the historical relationships between Africa and its diaspora in the modern period.
  • Develop into a specialist historian with the ability to carry out your own supervised research, whilst honing your analytical and written skills. Many of our students go on to do a MPhil/PhD research degree.
  • Learn directly by the only professor of the History of Africa and the African diaspora in Britain, Professor Hakim Adi, a leading internationally recognised scholar in the field.
  • Study from anywhere in the world as it is delivered completely online.
