Modern History

With a tradition of engaging with the past for more than five hundred years, the University of Aberdeen is one of Britain's powerhouses in researching and teaching history. Its MLitt Modern History is thus aimed equally at future researchers, teachers, decision makers and generally those with a love for history. The MLitt in Modern History combines taught elements with research components. It provides intensive research training for students aiming ultimately to enter into PhD programmes. However, it is also a degree course in its own right. The MLitt in Modern History is tailored to the individual interests of students, providing effective preparation for doctoral research and other career paths requiring skills in research and communication. It is the ideal next step for students with an undergraduate degree in History or a related discipline who want to take their understanding of Modern History to a higher level. Students are encouraged to develop a broad and deep understanding of their chosen area of study throughout the degree. Students can choose from a wide range of in-depth courses reflecting the specialisations of our staff in History from the 18th to the 21st centuries and in different parts of the world. Students also receive a high degree of individual guidance in the literature in their chosen field of study, engage with the work-in-progress of active historians and enhance their presentation skills. Students are then supervised in undertaking original dissertation research.
