Introduction

This MA introduces you to the advanced study of the history of the modern world, investigating historical change within a broader conceptual and theoretical framework.

One core taught module in Term 1 provides a solid foundation in the approaches to the study of society and culture in historical context from the early modern period to the contemporary world; while a second analyses key components of ‘the modern’ as it has unfolded across the world. Optional modules explore key themes in modern history in Term 2.

You’ll be able to take advantage of the Department’s six research centres, including participating in the lively schedule of academic research seminars, lectures and conferences.

The programme will particularly appeal if you wish to acquire the conceptual and practical skills needed to conduct further research in history.
