The MSt in Global and Imperial History offers a nine-month introduction to graduate research. It is designed for students who are interested to explore the history of the Middle East, Africa, South Asia, East Asia, Australasia or the Americas (excluding the US) in a global perspective. The MSt in Global and Imperial History can be taken either as a free-standing degree, or as the first step towards a DPhil. Students are encouraged to develop intellectual and practical familiarity with advanced research in the global history of the Middle East, Africa, South Asia, East Asia, Australasia and the Americas (excluding the US). Global and imperial history in this context implies transoceanic and transcontinental connections, comparisons, and exchanges between cultures, polities and societies. It also examines broad patterns and systems in history, whether religious, political, economic, cultural or ecological. Global history, in other words, is history with a global scope (often including European dimensions) that emphasizes comparative perspectives. Research training is combined with broad conceptual approaches that encourage students to learn from the recent historiographies of different periods and areas and with focused studies of periods or themes. This class work parallels supervised pursuit of a research project.
