Course content

The one-year MA in Modern History, given by the Department of International History, provides broad coverage of the origins, formation and reinvention of the modern world.

This is enabled by a research-oriented approach rooted in the humanities.

The degree provides broad coverage of the origins, formation and reinvention of the modern world, and has three main elements: a research-oriented approach rooted in the humanities (which will give students the opportunity to engage with scholarship across disciplines within the School); a timeframe which embraces early modern, modern and contemporary history (which complements social scientific research on our world today); and a 10,000-word dissertation in which students elaborate their own understanding of the nature and genealogy of the modern world (via a topic decided in consultation with a supervisor).

The MA in History will give students a firm grasp of the nature and genealogy of the modern world, and furnish secure foundations for more advanced research.
