Our MA in Urban History and Culture provides an unparalleled opportunity to study the social, political, cultural and economic development of two great world cities: Paris and London. It is offered in collaboration with Queen Mary University of London's School of History, School of Geography and School of English and Drama.
The MA in Urban History and Culture is a unique opportunity to study the social, political, cultural and economic development of the modern city from historical perspectives and through comparative experience of two of the great urban laboratories of the Western world, Paris and London.
You will explore the development of urban topography and planning through site visits and analysis, using a primarily bifocal approach to the growth of city living and management, and how that has shaped the fabric of the world.
With faculty expertise drawn from three Schools in the Faculty of the Humanities and Social Science and ULIP, as well as its split-site delivery, the programme enables students to develop both their empirical understanding of and their methodological approaches to what distinguishes and what connects these two cities, while expanding these comparative insights towards a broader engagement with urban history and culture, and the challenges cities face today.
Key benefits include:
An unparalleled opportunity to study the social, political, cultural and economic development of two great world cities: Paris and London.
You can choose between a split-site programme in Paris and London or a full year in Paris.
The programme is offered in collaboration with Queen Mary University of London's School of History, School of English and Drama and School of Geography, and the University of London Institute in Paris.
The opportunity to gain an international perspective and strong inter-cultural understanding as well as an ability to assess the contours of cultural difference.
The unrivalled opportunity to immerse yourself in two of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world and benefit from the exposure to the culture and traditions of two major European capitals.
Studying the MA in Urban History and Culture will provide you with a deep understanding of the history and contemporary organisation of two capital cities through a multidisciplinary approach as well as develop a range of advanced analytical and research skills.
Gaining a recognised postgraduate qualification with strong inter-cultural skills and international experience, along with a range of advanced project management skills will prepare you for many career paths or further study.
