Modern History degree offered at Canterbury Christ Church University provides opportunities to explore how the present came to pass, and how it presents the past.
You will be able to choose from a range of modules taught by leading experts in their field, design your own short courses, receive training in research skills, run your own reading group, undertake work placements, and complete a dissertation. Optional modules include histories of horror and utopian thought in the West.
The course offers opportunities to those who wish to pursue an eclectic generalist programme of modules and to those who seek specialisation in particular areas of Modern History. The underlying principle here is choice.
The MA is a significant qualification in its own right but could also fast track you, if you're successful, to MPhil and ultimately to PhD qualifications. The research and writing skills you'll gain, together with the specialist disciplinary knowledge developed during the course and work placements undertaken, will enhance your employability and help you find a career in education, the civil service, journalism, finance, the law, politics, and heritage.
