The MA in International History offers an intellectually stimulating approach to the subject through a theoretically based programme that aims to provide an understanding of global historical developments in the twentieth and emerging twenty-first centuries.
The course offers a broad international perspective on relationships and events between and amongst states over time, and ways of integrating specific national or regional approaches with aspects of world history. Rapid changes in communications, science & technology, urbanisation and industrialisation have brought dramatic changes, making it an exciting time to study history, particularly with an international perspective.
