About

This Race, Education and Decolonial Thought from Leeds Beckett University will deepen your understanding of the contemporary discourse on race, racism and decoloniality globally.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Whether the discussion centres on racial inequality in the UK, political developments in South Africa or the #blacklivesmatter movement in the USA, debates relating to race, racism and decoloniality are ever present in modern society. It has therefore become increasingly important to raise awareness of these matters within many professional occupations.

Drawing on theory and practice from the Global South and Global North, you will analyse what race, racism and decoloniality mean within these contexts and why these issues matter. You will study race, identity and culture within the Black Atlantic diaspora and the impact of black philosophies and movements. You will also explore contemporary theoretical debates around critical whiteness studies and critical ethnic studies.

As well as studying these areas, this Race, Education and Decolonial Thought from Leeds Beckett University will allow you to select option modules from other masters courses offered by the Carnegie School of Education, enabling you to tailor your learning to your academic interests or chosen career.

Career

You will be equipped with the transferable skills needed to work in a wide variety of dynamic careers. You could be employed in an equality, diversity and inclusion role in education, the NHS or local government, or you may choose to work in human rights, community development or politics, or graduate schemes in the public and private sectors. Alternatively, you could work as a researcher, or you could continue your academic research by studying for a PhD.
