Course content

Our MA in Modern History combines an advanced level introduction to the methodologies and techniques of modern history with a wide range of thematic modules exploring the 18th to 20th centuries.

You'll gain a sound understanding of various topics of your choice from the modern period, from the history of moving images to the politics of past injustices. You'll analyse important historiographical developments and their impact on modern historical study. Finally, you'll develop practical skills which are not only essential to your studies, but will also prepare you for a diverse range of careers.

You'll quickly feel part of our lively departmental community and we encourage you to attend seminars, masterclasses and research training sessions throughout the year. You'll have full access to the Centre for Modern Studies which provides an active programme of academic seminars, small conferences and reading groups involving both academic staff and graduate students.
