Whether the discussion centres on racial inequality in the UK, political developments in South Africa or the #blacklivesmatter movement in the USA, debates relating to race, racism and decoloniality are ever present in modern society. It has therefore become increasingly important to raise awareness of these matters within many professional occupations. This course will deepen your understanding of the contemporary discourse on race, racism and decoloniality globally.

Drawing on theory and practice from the Global South and Global North, you will analyse what race, racism and decoloniality mean within these contexts and why these issues matter. You will study race, identity and culture within the Black Atlantic diaspora and the impact of black philosophies and movements. You will also explore contemporary theoretical debates around critical whiteness studies and critical ethnic studies.

As well as studying these areas, this course will allow you to select option modules from other masters courses offered by the Carnegie School of Education, enabling you to tailor your learning to your academic interests or chosen career.

This course is the first of its kind in the country. You will be taught by academic staff who have conducted extensive research in the areas of race and education.
