The programme is designed both for students who want to enhance their understanding of the social, cultural, political and economic history of modern Europe, and for those who want to go on further primary research. It provides intensive research training for those who wish to go on to prepare a doctoral dissertation, but it is also a freestanding postgraduate degree course in its own right. The course covers Europe, including the British Isles, from roughly the middle of the 18th century to the present. The principal countries studied are Britain, France, Germany, Russia, Italy and Spain. The course aims to introduce students to the latest research topics, methods and debates in modern European history at an advanced level; it provides training in the use of printed, manuscript and other sources relevant to modern European history; it seeks to develop language skills where appropriate or necessary. It provides a structured introduction to key debates in modern European history, as well as a variety of intensive taught courses.
