MA - War Studies
The School of History at the University of Kent offers a great environment in which to research and study. Situated in a beautiful cathedral city with its own dynamic history, the University is within easy reach of the main London archives and is convenient for travelling to mainland Europe.
The School of History is a lively, research-led department where postgraduate students are given the opportunity to work alongside academics recognised as experts in their respective fields. The School was placed second nationally for ‘world-class’ research in themost recent Research Assessment Exercise, and consistently scores highly in the National Student Survey.
Building upon the success of our highly popular War Studies undergraduate programme, this MA concentrates on in-depth study of military history taught by our expert historians.
It is highly valuable to anyone considering a career in the armed forces, security industry or wishing to move on to further research.
In addition to the extensive collection of materials in the Templeman Library, the School also has excellent links with the National Army Museum and the Royal Engineers Museum, both of which have excellent archive collections, as well as excellent transport links to both London and the Continent.
The School of History runs a military history seminar series and annual battlefield tours. Members of the teaching team are also involved in convening the War, Society and Culture seminar series at the Institute of Historical Research in London, which provides another forum for high-level discussion on a wide range of military history topics.
There is a good community spirit within the School, which includes regular postgraduate social meetings, weekly seminars and a comprehensive training programme with the full involvement of the School’s academic staff. Thanks to the wide range of teaching and research interests in the School, we can offer equally wide scope for research supervision covering British, European, African and American history.
