The MSc Empires, Colonialism and Globalisation focuses on the phenomenon of imperialism and a series of related issues including the notions of modernity, nationalism, race and gender, as well as globalisation.
The core course is designed to provide you with a broad knowledge of empires from the 14th century to the present day. You will also be able to choose from a wide range of specialist options from the Departments of International Development, Government, Economic History, International History, Geography, as well as the European Institute and Gender Institute.
You will engage at an advanced level with the latest academic research in the field, and undertake your own research-based term papers and third term dissertation.
Students develop highly transferable skills valued by employers and go on to work in the foreign service, the EU, political think tanks, risk assessment, journalism and the NGO sector, or stay on to take a research degree.
