Master in Early Modern History - Máster en Historia Contemporánea
This programme is offered either full and part time basis
Modern British History at UEA is taught by a group of historians who represent one of the largest concentrations of expertise in this period in a British university, with specialisms including foreign and imperial policy, economic and social history, gender history and a range of other interests. The concentration of expertise provides an ideal research environment for anyone with an interest in Britain’s role in the modern world and the political debates about it, from the mid-nineteenth century to the post-war retreat from Empire.
This course enables students to explore the latest developments in areas with vibrant debate and rich historiographies that have been growing steadily in recent years, not least through the work of scholars at UEA. The MA course provides the opportunity to examine a diverse range of topics, from the era of industrialisation and ‘gunboat diplomacy’ to the impact of the Great War on British politics and society, through the Second World War and, ultimately, to imperial decline.
