Immersing you in the nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries, this taught Masters degree provides an advanced insight into modern and contemporary history, with a particular focus on the social and cultural history of the past 200 years. You will deepen your understanding of the modern world, exploring how major historical developments and events have intersected with the lives of normal every-day people, shaping views, attitudes and cultures. Developing an enhanced appreciation of the methods, approaches and concerns that inform social and cultural history, including the use of historical archives, you will gain expertise in the specialist practical skills required of research-active, professional historians. You will also develop other transferable skills and enhance your employability by engaging in real-world public-facing tasks and activities.
