Course Summary

The Modern History Masters at Glasgow brings together social and political historians, active in research on topics from the French Revolution to refugees in the 20th century. The programme provides you with thorough research training and a wide set of transferable skills in the conception, design and execution of a research project. Glasgow is an outstanding resource hub for the study of Modern History. On campus, the University Library holds superb printed and manuscript collections from the medieval to the present. You can also use the Baillie Collection of printed medieval and modern sources in Scottish, Irish and English history. The University’s Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery provides access to primary source materials in fields such as fine art, numismatics and ethnography. The city is home to world-class museums and galleries, the Mitchell Library and Glasgow Women’s Library. This course provides a dynamic and supportive research environment, where you’re encouraged to take part in many research-led initiatives such as seminar programmes.

The research skills and methods you’ll gain on this programme give you the transferable skills for positions in the public and private sectors, including heritage policy and projects, media and teaching. The programme is also a good foundation for a PhD.
