The BA Modern History allows students to study the history of Britain, Europe and the wider world from the 18th century to the present day. This exciting period has marked an age of discovery and globalisation—a time of rapid change, brutal wars, and belief in the possibility of societal and scientific progress. This course offers a wide range of optional modules about subjects close to home and further afield, including: Europe’s transition from a medieval to a modern world; Historical and contemporary issues in international politics; Sexuality in United States history; The history of social inequality and culture in Brazil; Controversial events of twentieth century Britain. Essex has several Special Collections in history, including the Essex Society for Archaeology and History Library, the Harsnett Collection, the Hervey Benham Oral History Sound Archive, the Bensusan Collection, and the Colchester Medical Society Library. Students will have access the UK Data Archive, a national service provider digital resources for historians, which is particularly strong in nineteenth and twentieth-century economic and social history.
