Master in Early Modern History - Máster en Historia Contemporánea
This programme is offered either full and part time basis
The MA in Modern European History offers you the opportunity to work with a group of historians of modern Europe who continue UEA’s long-standing reputation as a major centre for the study of the continent. There is a particular and distinctive concentration of expertise in the history of Central and Eastern Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries. This provides an ideal environment for students interested in the dilemmas and challenges faced by the great autocratic dynasties of Russia, Germany and the Habsburg Empire from the mid-19th century onwards. We also cover the dramatic and devastating consequences of social and political change not just for these countries, but for the Balkans and for Europe as a whole. Students also examine the collapse of the dynastic empires and the re-shaping of Europe at the end of the First World War, and the causes and consequences of the two most dramatic episodes in the ‘short twentieth century’: the Bolshevik and Nazi revolutions.
