MSc in Diaspora and Migration History

If you fancy stretching your intellectual muscle somewhat, then the University of Edinburgh's new MSc in Diaspora and Migration History might be the course for you.

From the University's website:

The MSc in Diaspora and Migration History is distinctive in its breadth and diversity, drawing on the extensive expertise in Scottish, British and Irish migration and diaspora history available in the Scottish Centre for Diaspora Studies (SCDS), but also involves scholars with complementary interests in African, American, Asian and Australian history within the School of History, Classics and Archaeology. The programme, the only one of its kind offered by a UK university, will provide world-class training in migration and diaspora history in the vibrant and innovative interdisciplinary atmosphere of the Scottish Centre for Diaspora Studies. It offers students a unique opportunity to extend their knowledge of global migration history through a range of core and option modules, with a particular focus on the Scottish, British and Irish diasporas, as well as conducting an independent research project in partnership with experienced academic supervisors, who are themselves leaders in their research fields. Students will pursue this advanced study in one of the world’s leading research universities with excellent resources close to hand at the National Library of Scotland (a copyright library) and the National Archives of Scotland.

It took some digging, but it looks like the cost of the course for 2009-2010 is £4850 for home based or EU students, and £11,250 for overseas. See
