Course summary

Course overview

Studying key topics like imperialism, postcolonialism and post-war threats to international security, you will gain an in-depth knowledge of a fascinating period in international history. Through an independent dissertation you will have the chance to choose your own specialism and focus on what interests you most. You will be taught by staff with a broad range of expertise and research interests in international history, in accordance with a philosophy that emphasises the development of students as practising historians.

We run a lively visiting guest lecture series, bringing new ideas and perspectives to your study. You will also have the chance to present your own work at forums and research conferences, building your confidence as a researcher and giving you transferable skills for the future.

You will study for the International History MA through a combination of taught modules, independent study, writing and research. Throughout the programme you will have the opportunity to emphasise your particular interests in international history through your choice of seminar and coursework assignments, and through the selection and development of an extended piece of independent research and critical writing on a topic of your choice.
