This absorbing MA gives you the opportunity to study and reflect on major 20th century events, such as total war, the rise and fall of communism, the collapse of the European empires, the changing place of women in western society and the decline of traditional religious belief.

You’ll be able to:-

- study social and political developments that most defined the character of the twentieth century
- focus in-depth on particular countries or themes that interest you

This programme will appeal to a wide range of students, including those who’ve recently or have decided to return to university later in life.
