Modern and Contemporary History - Queen Mary University of London

Focus on the historical events that shaped the world we live in today. Our BA in Modern and Contemporary History is taught by internationally renowned academics with expertise in modern British, European and American history and the international relations that have defined the world as we know it. You’ll build specialist knowledge of the history and historical techniques of the modern era, and apply a historical perspective to a sweeping range of contemporary issues. You’ll choose from modules focusing on Europe and the United States in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, exploring leadership, government and broader social and cultural contexts. You’re also free to take modules which provide global perspectives or consider earlier historical periods. Your classes will teach you how to engage with contemporary history using critical analysis: whether biographical, such as Kennedy or Thatcher; national, such as British or American history; or thematic, such as the history of terrorism or political thought.
