As the only MA in Naval History at a British university, this programme offers a unique opportunity to students looking to develop their skills and their knowledge of this area to a higher level. Taught by leading naval historians, the programme aims to set British naval power in the wider context of world naval development, showing the problems and solutions over time to operating navies – traditionally the most technologically sophisticated, wide-ranging and powerful instruments of war – in order to explain why Britain has been so successful and how this has impacted on British history. It provides both a theoretical basis for an understanding of sea power and practical case studies of its operation in practice, primarily through the study of the largest of the world’s navies in early modern to modern times, the Royal Navy.
