Course summary

Find out more about the TEF.

The Modern History programme can offer a range of modules which cover broad sweeps of modern History allowing students to consider how societies alter and change, the long term impact of war, economic upheaval and political radicalism, and the rise and fall of great powers. In addition the programme offers modules based upon depth, drilling down into events and moments of seminal change (the Great War, Genocide in C20th, Terrorism, the Irish Question).

In the first year, you will be introduced to new areas of study through an examination of various historical case studies and exploration of the historic environment, field trips and research projects, and by investigating how the past is captured, made and communicated through visits to archives or museums or analyses of film, TV and other media. In the second and third years, you will deepen your knowledge of the past through a combination of wide ranging modules, that survey long periods of time, and more focused, topic-centred specialist modules.

This combination is extensive and covers all interests and preferences from, for example, studies of modern America, the troubles in Northern Ireland, and the Holocaust to Post-War Britain.
