Postgraduate study

Postgraduate study

Many postgraduate research students are attached to the Centre for Imperial and Global History, and staff at the Centre share their expertise with postgraduate taught students through their innovative teaching on the Imperial and Global History Pathway of the History MA.

Postgraduate research students

Postgraduate research students are integral members of the Centre for Imperial and Global History. Their doctoral projects engage and expand the key areas of research expertise of the Centre, and the Centre in turn offers a supportive and intellectually stimulating space for postgraduate research students. Postgraduate research students are warmly encouraged to attend all events of the Centre and to participate actively in the life of the Centre. Each term, the Centre hosts a research seminar in which postgraduate researchers are invited to share their work-in-progress and receive constructive feedback in a friendly environment from the wider Centre membership. These are excellent opportunities to gain feedback as well as confidence in presenting research and are a highlight of the research calendar year for the Centre.

If you are interested in postgraduate research, you can find out more about our areas of expertise. You can find out more about individual staff research interests and publications, as well as contact information to follow up with them directly, through the list of Centre staff.

Postgraduate taught students

Staff at the Centre for Imperial and Global History also actively contribute to an exciting programme of MA teaching for postgraduate taught students. As part of the History MA at the University of Exeter, students can choose to specialise in the Imperial and Global History pathway of the degree.

As well as undertaking an independent research dissertation in the field of Imperial and Global History, postgraduate taught students on this pathway take our innovative Critical Approaches to Imperial and Global History module. Taught by our world-leading experts and directly informed by their specialist research, this module introduces students to key themes, methods, and analytical frameworks in the study of imperial and global history.
