The MA in Modern European History offers you the opportunity to work with a group of historians of modern Europe who continue UEA's long-standing reputation as a major centre for the study of the continent, particularly in the area of Central and Eastern European history in the 19th and 20th centuries.
The culmination of the programme is a dissertation on a topic of your own devising, undertaken mainly in the second half of the degree and supervised by member(s) of the School of History. While students concentrate their studies on one country, there is ample scope to pursue more comparative approaches to the history of Europe, particularly around themes such as nationalism and national identity, political mobilisation, or violence and genocide.
Seminars are led by modern history scholars, so students are guided by specialist teaching staff and brought into the world of their special interests and exposed to their research.
The MA equips students with the advanced skills and intensive subject knowledge they need to proceed to further independent research or go on to well-informed doctorate study.
