This programme allows students to explore American History in the hemispheric sense, taking ‘America’ to mean the whole hemisphere of the Americas. You will have the opportunity to take a comparative or transnational approach to the history of the Americas, as well as to study some countries and regions in more depth.
The University has an exceptional range of historians of the United States, Latin America, and the Caribbean, which enables them to provide courses and research supervision in a wide array of topics and time periods, ranging from the American Revolution, to comparative slavery, from the Latin American dictatorships to the Cold War foreign policy of the United States.
