The opportunity for interdisciplinary study of the continent is a particular advantage of the degree. Students can choose from a range of about 30 modules in fourteen disciplines.

Structure Students take three taught module units, one of which is considered a major, and complete a 10,000-word dissertation related to the major.

Masters of Arts in Culture Study. M.A. in Knowledge Systems and Practice In this program the student will learn how “humanity” is conceived of in different cultures, including but not focusing only on the West. We will study the intellectual inquiries and practices available in western and non-western cultures with a view to raising questions about the relationship between knowledge and culture. The program will reimagine the study of the past, the inquiry into the creativity and self-expression of the mind, the ability to build and shape institutions that are responsive to the deepest sufferings and aspirations of human beings. In our search for alternatives to western paradigms of knowledge that underpin our institutions and our ways of looking at nature and culture, some of the questions we will explore are: How do we re-narrate the traumatic story of colonization and, more importantly, how can we contribute to the post-colonial attempt to de-colonize the mind? How do we reconstruct the intellectual resources of “Indian” traditions whether embodied in Allama or Kabir, Gandhian Satyagraha or Tagore’s idea of the education of desire-- to make them relevant for understanding our present? How can contemporary critical theory enable a critique of the socio-political, economic and discourse structures in which we are embedded? This MA encourages a robust questioning of the nature of knowledge itself, by bringing ‘practice’ into a powerful conversation with ‘theory’, by bringing the realms of making, doing, immersing and experiencing into a dynamic dialogue with the realms of reflection, meaning...
