Modern History - University of East Anglia

**About This Course** Study Modern History at UEA and witness the unfolding of history since 1750. You’ll gain a solid grounding in the main periods of modern history, going right up to the era of Putin, Trump and Brexit. As you develop your grasp on history it will allow you to formulate a more critical awareness of the problems of the present. So you’ll graduate with a particular knowledge and understanding of the challenges of the modern world, especially in political and international contexts – as well as with research, analytical and communication skills, which will prove invaluable in the workplace, or if you choose to move on to postgraduate study. **Overview** Imagine reading Queen Victoria’s diaries, analysing depictions of slave ships, or considering the social and political power of African American jazz. This is just a glimpse of the sort of primary reading you might do as part of a Modern History degree at UEA. You will be taught by experienced, internationally renowned academics. Our modules are inspired by their research interests and expertise, so your learning will be at the forefront of the historical debate. We have particular strengths in British, European, Russian and Balkan history, as well as in the history of the Atlantic world, the Middle East, and Asia. Whether you’re interested in all areas of modern historical study or you’re looking forward to developing new specialisms, in your second and third years you will be able to tailor your degree by choosing from a huge range of optional modules. For example, you’ll have the chance to delve deeper into modules on topics such as the Cold War, Japan in modern times, and modern Germany. And you’ll be able to choose a special subject from a range of options as varied as sixties Britain, the life and times of Queen Victoria, and Stalin and Stalinism, all of which are led by academics currently researching in those areas. You can then broaden your horizons even further with modules from other disciplines including English literature, languages and politics. Whichever path you choose, you’ll develop a knowledge of the deep connections between history, memory, and the past and the present. You will learn to explore and understand the forces that shape the modern world, be they political, economic, social or cultural. You will come to understand how knowledge is constructed and manipulated – how history is written – and you will engage with its interpretation and debate. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
