With a focus on contemporary Africa, this programme provides research training that will prepare you to undertake research in African Studies.
It provides you with an understanding of major social, cultural, political and economic developments and provides you with the research training necessary to undertake a social-science based study of contemporary Africa which will enhance your ability to prepare and present to an audience on material you have researched.
MA programmes normally require an upper second-class Honours degree or equivalent with some background in the disciplines to be studied. Applicants with a background in other disciplines, or with less traditional qualifications, may be accepted for the Diploma in African Studies.
What have you learnt from your programme?
“Overall, my knowledge of research methods on African politics has been improved whilst my interactions with different academics and my supervisor in particular have helped me to be more reflexive and critical in the way I develop and present my research ideas.”
What is life like as a student at the University of Birmingham?
“Studying at the University of Birmingham has been significant to my academic development as it has given me the opportunity to meet different people who bring a variety of ideas to the table. Specifically, the weekly seminars in the various Schools and Colleges present an incredible opportunity to learn outside my normal academic lectures whiles there are a range of activities like poetry events that are essential for winding down in a more relaxing but productive fashion. So I must say that life in Birmingham has been full of productive interactions with great minds and particularly for me, I find it beneficial in that it has helped me to sharpen my intellectual and professional skills”.
