Studying Modern and Contemporary History is exciting and rewarding. It will help to satisfy students’ curiosity about recent past and allow students to acquire an in-depth understanding of the history of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. As well as an in-depth knowledge, Modern and Contemporary History students also develop essential skills of analysis, argument and communication - all highly valued in today’s competitive employment market. This degree allows students to study a range of issues in modern and contemporary history and through Royal Holloway’s courses students will learn how to analyse these issues in different ways - from the biographical, looking at Martin Luther King or Nelson Mandela; the national, by studying, for instance, modern British or American history; and the thematic, with options such as the history of global terrorism, and modern political thought. Students will also study leadership and government and the broader social and cultural contexts, to form a holistic view of modern history.
