The African History Project aims to deliver exceptional education, to invigorate Black history scholarship, and to make impactful and lasting contributions to society – locally, nationally and globally.
We are combining a service driven mission with student centred teaching to deliver high quality courses that engage and challenge students. Though a new school, we are already receiving praise for our teaching, commitment to excellence and championing of Black histories.
The school is made up of three departments which together deliver our public lectures, workshops, short courses and foundation certificates covering all aspects of Black history. They are the:
- Department of African History
- Department of Black Political Thought and Culture
- Department of Education
Studying at the AHP
We welcome applications from students of all ages, nationalities and background. Though there are no pre-requisite qualifications for most of our courses, spaces are limited and fill up quickly so we recommend early registration.
We have high expectations of our students, and we aim to provide the support and academic rigour they need to fully immerse themselves in their course and get the most out. This includes innovative online course design, unrivalled knowledge of online digital archives and essay-writing support.
Our International Community
We aim to break down barriers to the study of Black history, allowing students to dive into Black historic narratives from anywhere in the world. Our global student body brings its light and energy to the institution, making us better and stronger.
Future Study and Career
The academic rigour of our courses is such that they are perfect steppingstones for those interested in further study at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
Our courses are also great continuing professional development, particular for history teachers, journalists and economists working on Africa.
