Description

The one-year MA in Modern History, given by the Department of International History, provides broad coverage of the origins, formation and reinvention of the modern world.

This is enabled by a research-oriented approach rooted in the humanities.

The degree provides broad coverage of the origins, formation and reinvention of the modern world, and has three main elements: a research-oriented approach rooted in the humanities (which will give students the opportunity to engage with scholarship across disciplines within the School); a timeframe which embraces early modern, modern and contemporary history (which complements social scientific research on our world today); and a 10,000-word dissertation in which students elaborate their own understanding of the nature and genealogy of the modern world (via a topic decided in consultation with a supervisor).

The MA in History will give students a firm grasp of the nature and genealogy of the modern world, and furnish secure foundations for more advanced research.

Programme Funding

The School recognises that the cost of living in London may be higher than in your home town or country, and we provide generous scholarships each year to home and overseas students.

This programme is eligible for needs-based awards from LSE, including the Graduate Support SchemeMaster’s Awards, and Anniversary Scholarships.

Selection for any funding opportunity is based on receipt of an offer for a place and submitting a Graduate Financial Support application, before the funding deadline. Funding deadline for needs-based awards from LSE: 28 April 2022.

In addition to our needs-based awards, LSE also makes available scholarships for students from specific regions of the world and awards for students studying specific subject areas.

Student Destinations

Students develop highly transferable skills valued by employers and go on to work in the foreign service, the EU, political think tanks, risk assessment, journalism or the NGO sector, or stay on to take a research degree.

LSE history graduates find employment in almost any job sector due to the wide range of transferable skills developed during their studies.

Very few people with a degree in history go on to work as historians, but students with a degree in international history have many skills that are in high demand today.

History students learn to read and process large amounts of information, to sift out unreliable data, to analyse and organise the material available, and to form a coherent argument orally or in writing. Students at LSE learn to set and achieve personal goals, manage their time to meet deadlines, and have confidence speaking in public. In our knowledge-based economy, employers value these skills.
