About

The MRes in The History of Africa and the African Diaspora at University of Chichester is a unique and exciting programme, and the first of its kind to be delivered completely online.

Overview

You will explore the historical relationships between Africa and its diaspora in the modern period by conducting your own supervised research in this important field.

You will be encouraged to critically re-evaluate existing narratives that have marginalised the study of the African diaspora, especially in Britain, and often totally separated the history of Africa from that of its diaspora.

On this The History of Africa and the African Diaspora course from University of Chichester you will:

  • Study a unique and rewarding subject matter, exploring the historical relationships between Africa and its diaspora in the modern period.
  • Develop into a specialist historian with the ability to carry out your own supervised research, whilst honing your analytical and written skills. Many of our students go on to do a MPhil/PhD research degree.
  • Learn directly by the only professor of the History of Africa and the African diaspora in Britain, Professor Hakim Adi, a leading internationally recognised scholar in the field.
  • Study from anywhere in the world as it is delivered completely online.

Programme Structure

Learn from your own home, at your own pace:

  • History of Africa and the African Diaspora
  • Research Proposal and Literature Review module
  • These modules will prepare you for the research project. You will then be allocated a research supervisor to work for the remaining credits by supervised independent research and the writing of the dissertation (120 credits). Full time students must complete 180 credits over one academic year.
