Historians have long been fascinated by modernity and the societies to which it gave rise. The MA Modern History explores these changes, allowing you to explore the political cleavages and cultural uncertainty unleashed by the great revolutions, the mobilisations and resistance of the two world wars, and the transnational forces of empire and globalisation.
