Course content

The Masters in Slavery, Forced Migration & Reparative Justice offers an international learning experience that involves studying, training and conducting research in different European countries over a period of two years. It is designed to enable the next generation of humanities graduates to develop and transmit knowledge of the history and legacies of slavery and forced migration as they take up careers in media, education, heritage, government and non-governmental organisations, business and academia. Key strengths of the programme are its global, comparative and interdisciplinary approach and its combination of rigorous academic training in historical theory and practice with hands-on professional skills development.

  • The programme offers a unique opportunity to study the history of slavery and reparatory justice from a global and comparative perspective, building on the expertise of seven European universities.
  • You will have the chance to study in three different European countries.
  • The city of Glasgow provides an excellent location for the first semester of the programme. Glasgow was central to the European trade of sugar, tobacco and cotton from the Americas, a past reflected in Glasgow's monumental downtown area and in the collections of the city's world-class libraries, archives and museums.
  • The programme includes a summer school at Radboud University on Slavery, Forced Migration and Indentured Labour: a Digital Humanities Approach.
