About European History
Masters degrees in European History explore the heritage, ideas and identities of European nations and their peoples. Some courses will focus on specific countries, periods or concepts. Others will take a broader approach to the History of Europe: asking how this region shaped the modern world (or if it really did).
Postgraduate specialisms in this subject include Modern European History, European Politics and Culture or courses focussing on specific regions such as Central Europe, Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, the Baltic or the Mediterranean.
For much of European History, the history of Europe would have been regarded as synonymous with the broader subject of History itself. This bias may have shifted somewhat in the modern period, but it’s still true that many of the most hotly debated and frequently analysed topics in History relate to European countries, peoples and events.
European History encompasses the Western Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution and the processes of exploration and colonisation that transported European economic, military and cultural power around the world.
You’ll have the chance to examine and critique all of these areas as a postgraduate student of European History – including the opportunity to question the dominance of European narratives within the wider discipline.
Career opportunities include work in heritage, communications or cultural industries.
