BA (Hons)War Studies

Why choose this course?

The War Studies degree will provide graduates with knowledge of the debates and developments related to war; its causes, uses and how it may be avoided or concluded. Our graduates will be equipped to develop and sustain debates on the strategic, ethical and philosophical uses of war in both historical and contemporary settings. As well as subject-specific knowledge, graduates will develop a wide range of key transferable skills including enhanced communication, analytical and technological proficiency. The degree encourages individuals to become digitally literate and intellectually curious, with the capacity to work both independently and as part of a wider team to understand, develop and apply solutions to both theoretical and practical problems. Such skills equip our graduates to use their knowledge in enterprising and profitable ways in their chosen careers and develop their roles within the wider community.
