Modern History

This degree programme will equip you with a range of knowledge and skills for undertaking and completing an independent research project. It is based on the assessment of historical sources and the importance of historiography, but 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). Through the programme you will develop a range of analytical skills and theoretical concepts which are relevant to modern history. At Master's 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. Formal teaching will include lectures as well as staff-led seminars.
