About European History at Newcastle University

The European History MA covers the history of conflict from the 16th to 20th centuries, across continental Europe. It includes the military, social and political dimensions of conflict and its impact upon national and transnational European cultures, combined with study of a modern European language.

The course is designed to develop a comprehensive understanding of the ways in which conflicts have been:

  • prepared
  • imagined
  • lived
  • represented
  • remembered
  • narrated

You will also have the opportunity to study an additional modern European language.

You take a combination of compulsory and optional modules, of which language learning is a compulsory component. The taught modules are delivered through:

  • seminars
  • individual tutorials
  • self-directed learning

You will then complete a dissertation on a chosen period of a specific European country. An independent study project is available as well as the compulsory dissertation.

Facilities

You will have access to dedicated MA study space, PC clusters and free printing in the Armstrong Building. You will also receive a personal study allowance of £100.
