On our MA Modern History you will examine contemporary trends through historical lenses, by focusing on the deeper histories of nationalism, imperialism and popular politics.
You’ll be taught by one of the largest groups of modern historians in the UK, working at the forefront of their fields in modern British, European and international history. Your modules will relate directly to our lecturers’ research, putting your studies at the heart of the latest historical issues and debates. And you’ll gain new insight into seismic political events such as Brexit, Trump’s election and the ongoing European refugee crisis.
Join our School and you’ll become part of our vibrant postgraduate community. You’ll also develop the necessary professional skills to follow in the footsteps of our previous graduates, who’ve gone on to careers in law, finance, the civil service, local government and administration, heritage and tourism, teaching and research as well as doctoral study.
