This programme is an exciting opportunity to study the history of Europe through its history of conflict. The social, political and military dimensions of conflict are explored and you are taught by historians whose expertise of continental Europe ranges from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries. In addition you develop research skills and techniques, including learning a foreign language, and have opportunities to employ the methodologies and concepts used by historians of different European countries.
This programme covers the military, social (public and private) and political dimensions of conflict and its impact upon national and European cultures. The history of culture and mentality is explored alongside political and military history to develop a comprehensive understanding of the ways in which conflicts have been prepared, imagined, lived, represented, remembered and narrated.
You take compulsory modules and optional modules, of which language learning is a compulsory component. The taught modules are delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, individual tutorials and self-directed learning.
You then complete a dissertation on a chosen period of a specific European country.
