Course summary

Why choose this course?

The twentieth century is a century of change and subtle continuities that as yet defies ready categorisation. Historians and social scientists have however, given us much to think about with regard to developments that can get overshadowed by concern with international relations and conflict.

This Masters course allows you to explore the rich and varied history of Britain in the twentieth century through focusing on a number of aspects, namely youth sub-culture, consumerism, the penal system, the welfare state and nationalism. You will study these themes in depth under the care of tutors who have a keen interest and stakes in the development of these fields.

Career Paths

The MA Twentieth Century Britain provides you with a pathway into various careers in academia, teaching, heritage, social work, and potentially the legal professions, and is a solid foundation for doctoral research in cognate subject areas where a master’s qualification is often regarded as a sine qua non.

Alternatively, this MA - though non-vocational - will prepare you for work in a variety of professions that require data collection and analysis, especially qualitative data, along with a sound grasp of how to investigate the parameters (context) in which a given phenomenon or question needs to be considered.

Whether you aim for further study or employment, this MA qualification is designed to give you the confidence and the skills to distinguish yourself in an increasingly competitive market.
