The MA in Modern World History is the only one of its kind in the UK to be endorsed and promoted by the internationally recognised World History Association. It examines the transnational influences, connections and conflicts that intersect in world history and seeks to foster a holistic approach to historical problems that have had cross-cultural effects on people in many parts of the globe.
We welcome research students interested in the field of modern world history.
Staff members of the group have particular research strengths in the history of modern Britain, Europe and America, heritage, maritime history, political history, borders, empire and slavery.
