Research Degrees in African Studies

Mode of Attendance: Full Time or Part Time

Supervision is provided for research leading to MPhil and PhD degrees within the broad general area of African studies. Research topics such as the study of a language (from a descriptive, comparative, philological or textual point of view), or of literature (whether author-based, thematic or comparative), or of any of the performing arts, which falls within our own core expertise, are supervised entirely in the Department. However, there is great potential for extending the range of topics by means of joint supervision with colleagues from other departments and centers.

The MLitt in Middle East, Caucasus and Central Asian Security Studies (MECCASS) provides students with in-depth familiarity with the political and security dynamics of the geographic area of the Middle East, Caucasus and Central Asia.

The MLitt in Middle East, Caucasus and Central Asian Security Studies is a one-year multidisciplinary degree run by the School of International Relations which offers an advanced grounding in the security of three fascinating and turbulent regions: the Middle East, Caucasus and Central Asia. It explores the security, politics, economics, history and culture of these strategically significant areas.

Highlights The course is designed as a prelude to professional work in diplomacy, government, NGOs, or international business or as a preparation for PhD study. In most years, the MECCASS teaching staff conduct a study trip for students to either Central Asia or the Middle East, offering unique insights (these trips depend on staff availability and conditions on the ground, and cannot, therefore be guaranteed to be available every year; they are funded by participating students). The course offers an opportunity for language study in Arabic, Persian or Russian. Teaching is deeply informed with real-world experience as the programme regularly brings in practitioners and outside experts. Teaching format ... [-]
