Course summary

Studying with some of the finest academics in the country, our Master’s course will improve and deepen your knowledge and understanding of modern history, with a particular focus on Britain and Europe in the 20th century.

Your studies will combine seminars and tutorials. And you’ll be able to take advantage of our specialisms in the history of Central and Eastern Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries, historical approaches to nationalism, the social, cultural, and political history of modern Britain, and international diplomatic history.

Our programme is characterised by its intensity, complexity and density of study. Through it you’ll not only acquire a more advanced knowledge and understanding of modern history, but you’ll also develop and improve your understanding of the problems posed by primary sources and documents.

You’ll learn to synthesise and apply complex historical theories and concepts, and to test hypotheses against highly detailed examples and case studies. And you’ll develop the ability to discriminate between conflicting interpretations and perspectives – and to communicate your findings in a sustained and lucid manner, both in discussions and in your written work.

You’ll put the skills and knowledge you will have acquired to good use in your Master’s dissertation. You’ll then graduate fully-prepared for doctoral study, should you decide to remain in academia. And you’ll possess qualities vital to future employment, including problem-solving skills, self-discipline and time-management, the ability to work with others, and excellent oral and written skills.

ABOUT

On our MA Modern History you will examine contemporary trends through historical lenses, by focusing on the deeper histories of nationalism, imperialism and popular politics.

You’ll be taught by one of the largest groups of modern historians in the UK, working at the forefront of their fields in modern British, European and international history. Your modules will relate directly to our lecturers’ research, putting your studies at the heart of the latest historical issues and debates. And you’ll gain new insight into seismic political events such as Brexit, Trump’s election and the ongoing European refugee crisis.?

Join our School and you’ll become part of our vibrant postgraduate community. You’ll also develop the necessary professional skills to follow in the footsteps of our previous graduates, who’ve gone on to careers in law, finance, the civil service, local government and administration, heritage and tourism, teaching and research as well as doctoral study.?
