Overview

Historians have long been fascinated by modernity and the societies to which it gave rise.

This course 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.

Our optional work placement module gives you the chance to share your enthusiasm for the subject, working on a project with one of our partners in the arts, culture and heritage sectors.

We’ll give you training in research skills. Supervised by an academic, you’ll research and write a dissertation on a topic of your choice.
