Course Summary

History - This is the only Master-level programme in History focusing on the study of Asia, the Middle East and Africa in the UK, and can therefore offer an unrivalled breadth of courses on the history of these regions. The programme provides a sound training in the historical sciences. It can also be taken with an intensive language pathway over two years, therefore making this programme unique in Europe. The two-year intensive language pathway is directed at students who want to engage with Asia, Africa and the Near and Middle East in a professional as well as academic way, as the intensive language course would enable them to reach a near proficient knowledge of the language.

Turkish - The two-year language pathway is directed at students with a professional and academic interest in Turkey. The intensive training in Turkish language aims at supporting students’ ability to tackle their disciplinary interests by engaging with written texts and in oral communication in Turkish.

Your chosen discipline is combined with intensive Turkish language over two years (including a period in Turkey).

Access to the Turkish language pathway is currently available for students with

  • beginner, or
  • post-beginner level of proficiency.

Students proficiency levels will be assessed through a placement test during registration week (specific dates will be provided to the applicants).

Modules

This is a basic introductory language acquisition module for absolute beginners in the written language; students are not assumed to have any previous knowledge of the language or its script. The module covers several basic constructions of the language, enabling students to acquire basic skills in reading, writing and comprehension. Successful students will gain the ability to read and write short simple texts.
