Program Description

MA Modern History

University of Kent, School of History

Launched in 2009, this popular MA programme focuses on the period c1500-2000, and draws on the considerable range of expertise within the School to offer a broad selection of taught modules, allowing postgraduates to tailor the programme to their interests.

Students learn from academics regarded as experts in their fields and research areas, and develop their capacity to think critically about past events, their approach to primary and secondary sources from a variety of perspectives and strive to understand the complex issues surrounding context and significance.

In addition, students engage with the wider historiography and discourse associated with their studies, understanding the structure and nature of cultural, political and social forces in the modern period.


  • Minimum 2.1 or equivalent in history or a relevant subject (eg, politics, international relations, archaeology).
  • In certain circumstances, the School will consider candidates who have not followed a conventional education path. These cases are assessed individually by the Director of Graduate Studies.
