•Research, scholarship and consultancy work helps ensure the programme is up-to-date with new developments and contemporary thinking

This Modern History MRes degree programme will give you the knowledge and skills required to complete an independent research project, and the opportunity to become part of an intertextual academic community that will enrich your work, inspire new interdisciplinary ideas, and open up a network of likeminded academic historians.

Modern History is based on the assessment of historical sources, and the importance of historiography. The discipline also acknowledges that approaches from other fields in the humanities and social sciences frequently enhance our knowledge of Modern History (from the late eighteenth century to contemporary times). In this sense we encourage you to deal creatively and systematically with complex issues from a number of investigative vantage points.

Through the programme you will develop a range of analytical skills and theoretical concepts which are relevant to Modern History. At Masters level you are expected to engage with primary sources and historical debates, so that your own research can demonstrate a variety of appropriate methods and be related to the work of others in the relevant field. As this process will involve identifying and accessing appropriate sources, archives and other relevant information, you will be taught the necessary research skills that will enable you to achieve rich and rewarding outcomes both during and in the culmination of your research.
