The MSc in Middle Eastern Diasporas is an interdisciplinary programme that builds on two fields of study, Diaspora Studies and Middle Eastern Studies.
Courses in the programme will equip students with a theoretical basis of Diaspora Studies to explore the historical, cultural, social and political dynamics of the Middle East.
The programme will combine seminar work, oral presentations and essays culminating in a dissertation.
You will also acquire a strong understanding of theoretical and conceptual tools required to understand diasporas within the disciplinary fields of Diaspora Studies and Middle Eastern studies and an academically-based, independent and critical knowledge of the Middle East diasporas in particular.
You will refine your abilities to engage critically and analytically with the significant literature and learn to undertake a sustained piece of independent research that demonstrates the research skills, training and knowledge you have acquired.
