The MA in War and Society is a truly unique course exploring seismic events that sparked violent change throughout the course of human history.
You will attempt to investigate what war means, and discover a meaningful definition. Analysed through multiple contexts including the political, social, cultural, technological, historical, military and media, you will learn how messages can be distorted in subtle and sophisticated ways.
This is a collaborative, interdisciplinary MA Degree programme that is harnessed by the breadth of research expertise in the College of Arts and Humanities.
