The Master’s Programme in Modern History will provide you with knowledge of, and insight into, the modern world. The programme will give special consideration to the 20th century until today, with some attention to the 18th and 19th century background. The focus is on Europe but the programme also pays attention to other parts of the world. We offer a broad understanding of modern times coupled with a strong emphasis on research skills.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME?

The Master’s Programme in Modern History is committed to the belief that a greater appreciation and understanding of European history is critical for understanding today’s social and political problems. As part of the programme, you will gain a broad familiarity with the some of the main political, social, economic and cultural developments and processes characteristic of the past 100 to 200 years. These include state and nation building; the struggle between democracy and dictatorship; European imperialism and anti-imperial movements; the rise of identity-based social and political movements; political extremism and governments’ responses to it; and changing policies on migration out of and into Europe.

You will acquire skills in researching and writing, and learn to analyse a wide array of sources, including handwritten materials, images and material artefacts, and online databases. You will be introduced to digital humanities approaches, and you will have access to a number of digital resources and databases and to the rich collections in the Uppsala University Library.

During this programme you can expect to:

  • gain the theoretical and research skills you need to conduct your own independent research.
  • have access to a number of digital resources and databases and to the rich collections in the Uppsala University Library.
  • present your original Master’s thesis to experts in the field.
  • have the opportunity to apply for an internship at a cultural or governmental institution, or do a research internship within one of the research projects at the department.

Student profile
You have a broad interest in the humanities or social sciences and have studied a good amount of history during your Bachelor’s programme. Having an interest in current issues in society and some social engagement will probably also help during your Master’s studies. You are extremely motivated and have confidence in your own ability and knowledge. You enjoy an opportunity to study primary sources and discuss them with your peers.

Talking and writing in English is not a problem for you and you expect to contribute as much to the educational experience of others as you expect to learn from their previous experiences and knowledge. A future PhD education is a distinct possibility, but starting to work right after graduation is also something you are considering.
