Months of entry
The MA Politics and Contemporary History is well established and attracts applicants of exceptional quality from the UK and abroad.
This interdisciplinary course is explicitly historical in scope, having particular focus on those things within living memory. It reflects the vast upsurge of interest in contemporary history following the end of the Cold War and the attendant opening of much of the hidden history of the 20th century.
The course will address contending approaches to recent events which have shaped your own life and the lives of those immediately around you.
