The MA in Politics and Contemporary History has been running for many years and attracts applicants of exceptional quality from the UK and abroad.
This course is explicitly historical in scope. It has a particular focus on events and process that have taken place since 1900. 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 University of Nottingham boasts one of the highest concentrations of research expertise in contemporary history in the UK.
