Overview

The Master's degree in European History (Part-Time) at Birkbeck, University of London  brings together these different fields and develops new approaches to the history of Europe from the early modern period to the present day. It provides you with an appreciation of key debates that have shaped our understanding of Europe and the most important historical and methodological approaches to critically interpreting the European past. Rather than presuppose one all-encompassing definition of 'Europe', whether geographical, ideological or otherwise, the course highlights the different contexts within which the European past and present can be analysed.

Alongside a wide range of option modules covering many aspects of European history and politics from the early modern period to the Cold War, you will also receive training in research methods and undertake your own dissertation, which makes this programme an excellent entry point for more advanced study at either MPhil/PhD level or professionally.

Careers and Employability

Graduates go in to careers in education, the Civil Service, research and journalism, archiving and libraries. Possible professions include teacher, Civil Service fast streamer, researcher, journalist, or archivist.
