Course content

This programme provides an intellectually rigorous introduction to Modern British Studies through two core modules and your choice of optional modules.

You will benefit from the expertise of a large number of British historians at Birmingham, who will both teach on the programme and provide expert supervision for your dissertation.

You will study four core modules :
New Directions in Modern British History
Sites and Sources in Modern British Studies
Historical Methods: Research Skills
Research Methods & Skills: Dissertation Preparation.

All core modules are assessed by 4,000-word essay.

You will also choose optional modules to the value of 40 credits (two single modules or one double module). These can be taken from the Department of History - assessed by 4,000-word essay - or from other programmes offered in the School of History and Cultures, with the approval of the Programme Director.

You will complete the MA with a 15,000-word dissertation on a topic of your choice.

About the School of History and Culture

The programmes in the School of History and Cultures offer students enquiry based learning within a rich and diverse environment to stimulate debate and challenge conventional thinking.
The programmes derive from departments which are all excellently rated by the QAA both in teaching and research terms (Medieval History 5, Modern History 5 and African Studies 5*). Our staff publish widely, and we are developing and consolidating a strong, supportive research culture in the School.
We are extremely proud to announce in June 2016, that History at Birmingham was ranked the top research department in the country by the Research Excellence Framework (REF). The national REF exercise assessed research publications and the public impact of research carried out in all universities in the UK between 2008-2014. Our department had an impressive 45% of its research judged to be ‘world-leading’.
