Atlantic Studies suspended for 15/16. Applications will remain open for 16/17.
The MSc in Atlantic Studies enables you to investigate the link among the many peoples, cultures and environments of the Atlantic world. Core seminars explore the transatlantic movements of people, commodities and ideas, and the circular transmission of language, ideologies, and disease. Elective modules facilitate independent study and fieldwork, and allow students to conduct selective comparisons of the histories, literatures, and ecologies of the regions connected by the Atlantic Ocean: Europe, Africa, and the Americas. Study trips to various cities of the Atlantic facilitate experiential learning and networking for future internships/placement and employment.
