Modern War Studies and Contemporary Military History

The course commences with three research skills seminars and after a year of supervised independent research, culminates with the student�s submission of a dissertation. During the first six months, candidates are encouraged to attend a series of guest seminars and dinners, at which some experts in the field present papers. This series of talks examines why and how modern wars are fought, and the principal influences that will affect the conduct of war � and Britain�s role � in the future. This seminar programme will also be attended by Associate Students who are not degree candidates but wish to attend the talks and enjoy the ensuing discussion over dinner.
