University of Kent
War, Media and Society
This programme explores how conflict occurs across a variety of countries and landscapes in the late 19th and 20th centuries, and how such conflict is managed and presented through media and propaganda. It takes in different types of conflict, from conventional trench warfare and geopolitical stand-offs to guerrilla tactics and civil defence initiatives. It also examines the application of technology in warfare, the impact of the media on public opinion, along with the increasing importance of the home front in 20th-century warfare.
A minimum 2.1 or equivalent in history or a relevant subject (e.g. politics, international relations, archaeology); in certain circumstances, the school considers candidates who have not followed a conventional education path; these cases are assessed individually by the director of graduate studies.
Assessment is by coursework, and the dissertation counts for half the final grade.
