M.A. in Atlantic History & Politics

Proposed One-Year M.A. in Atlantic History & Politics

With a tentative launch in Summer 2020, the Kinder Institute’s proposed one-year, 30-credit hour M.A. in Atlantic History & Politics will provide a unique opportunity for Master’s students to engage in rigorous, interdisciplinary examination of the connections and conflicts among the diverse peoples of the Atlantic basin, including the Americas, Africa, and Europe, from the early modern era of European empires through the more recent “American century.”

The proposed degree is slated to kick off with a nine-credit hour, monthlong summer program at University of Oxford’s Corpus Christi College, where students will take classes and small group tutorials with faculty housed there, and then continues throughout the fall and spring on the University of Missouri campus in Columbia. Students in the M.A. will have access to classes across multiple disciplines at MU, including History, Political Science, and Public Affairs, as well as the opportunity to get credit for internships in research, public history, and academic programming.

More information can be found in this brochure, and check back here in late summer for more details on how to apply. Questions about the proposed program can be directed to Kinder Institute Chair and MU Professor of History Jay Sexton, SextonJ@missouri.edu.
