Description

Advertisement

The MA in War and Conflict in the Modern World combines the disciplines of History and International Relations to provide students with multi-disciplinary, advanced study from both humanities and social science perspectives.

The course covers the period from the French Revolution to the present. It examines the impact of the French and Industrial Revolutions on warfare, before focusing on the development of 'total war' that reached its apogee in the First and Second World Wars, and the interaction between democracies and conflict in the 20th century.

To understand war in this period, students will study the development of international relations as well as the actual wars fought. The programme looks at the 'face of battle' as seen by soldiers, generals and politicians; developments in the tactical, operational and strategic levels of war; the interaction between war and society; and the thinking that drove on these changes in warfare.

The programme also draws on Brunel's expertise in intelligence studies, offering the students the chance to take optional modules in this area from the University's Centre for Intelligence and Security Studies.

The programme aims to give students a thorough grounding of the place of war in the modern world, an understanding of historical and social science research methodologies, and an overview of diplomacy/international relations and war.
