An understanding of war, for good or ill, is of vital importance. This programme offers the opportunity to study the theory and practice of war in a wide range of aspects, from the Middle Ages to the present day, and from causes to consequences.
You will spend the first semester studying on the degree’s core course which covers both the major thinkers on warfare and the practice and conduct of war.
In the second semester, you will take three optional courses which delve in greater detail into a particular aspect of military or strategic history.
You will complete the programme by writing a dissertation based on your own research. This requires you to engage in original research guided by an expert in the ﬁeld.
The programme provides an excellent platform for you to move onto PhD studies and an academic career.
Positions held by recent graduates include Development Director, Professor, Correspondent, and Freelance Journalist.
