Why study a Masters in Caribbean Society & Culture?
The Culture of the Caribbean is extremely broad due to the diversity of its peoples, geography and cultures. Issues such as imperialism, post-colonialism, race and identity, and political movements may be the key topics of your thesis research.
For example, you might examine issues surrounding class and race with the abolition of slavery, or theories of identity in relation to the move to independence of most of the Caribbean Territories.
Careers in this field may include traditional roles in academia such as teaching and publishing, as well as media such as journalism and broadcasting. Other careers may include archiving and curating for museums or heritage sites, as well as positions in government departments working on issues such as foreign policy, or public relations for charities working in the Caribbean.
