Summary

This course will allow you to take a broad approach to studying modern history by providing the opportunity to explore a range of issues across Africa, India, the Americas, Britain and Europe from the early modern period to the 21st century

You will enhance your research skills, and you’ll be able to choose from a wide range of optional modules spanning a wide range of nations, continents, periods and themes to explore topics that interest you. You could study black internationalism alongside early modern Europe, the Spanish state, Stalinism, political violence in India or apartheid.

You’ll be taught by leading researchers as part of a large and diverse School of History as well as the Leeds Arts and Humanities Research Institute. Our research interests range from social history and identity to political history, nationalism and internationalism, meaning this flexible course offers plenty of opportunities to gain important skills while focusing on issues that suit your interests.

The world-class Brotherton Library has one of the best history collections in the UK, ranging from monographs and journals to conference papers, theses and over 100 digital databases of primary sources and other materials for fundamental research. The Brotherton also has its own special collections including the Leeds Russian Archive and the Feminist Archive North.
