MA Twentieth Century Britain

The twentieth century is a century of change and subtle continuities that as yet defies ready categorisation. Historians and social scientists have however, given us much to think about with regard to developments that can get overshadowed by concern with international relations and conflict.

This Masters course allows you to explore the rich and varied history of Britain in the twentieth century through focusing on a number of aspects, namely youth sub-culture, consumerism, the penal system, the welfare state and nationalism. You will study these themes in depth under the care of tutors who have a keen interest and stakes in the development of these fields.
