Study at the Centre

Centre offers a number of opportunities for study at postgraduate level:

MA by Research in Caribbean Studies - one year full time, two years part time

MPhil/PhD in Caribbean Studies - maximum four years full time

The Centre is comprised of a number of academics from different University departments and students undertaking Caribbean dissertations are supervised by these academics. See our staff pages for more information about our staff and their research interests.

Applicants for all programmes should possess an Upper Second Class Honours degree or equivalent in a relevant subject area. Applicants for the MPhil/PhD in Caribbean Studies are normally expected to possess - or be close to completing - a masters degree in a relevant discipline.

At present the Centre does not offer a taught MA programme. However, its Postdoctoral Fellows, Dr Mike Niblett and Dr Chris Campbell, will be offering two modules on modern and contemporary Caribbean literature as part of the new World Literatures MA programme. See here for further details:
