In a world of uncertainty and rapid change it is more important than ever to study why and how wars are fought. The University of Buckingham has a well-established Master's degree in Modern War Studies and Contemporary Military History based in London. The one year (two years part time) course* commences in October with a 'Course Study Day' followed by 'Research Skills' lectures and culminates, after a period of supervised research, with the submission of a dissertation. During their time of study, candidates are encouraged to attend both a series of guest seminars at the Army and Navy Club, Pall Mall, at which some of the most eminent names in the field present papers, and course research day at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. This series of talks examines a range of historical subjects as well as those issues affecting modern Defence in all dimensions.
*A six-month long variant of this course is available to all those who have attended the Advanced Command and Staff Course (or its equivalent). Click here for details.
