Course content

The broad historical narrative on this course aims to provide you with the opportunity to explore specific military themes in depth, to contribute to the wider academic debate on the relationship between the military and society, and to conduct original research.

In principally addressing the study of British military history, both within the European context and the wider world, the course seeks to explain why wars occur, highlight how warfare has changed through the ages, and to show how the military interacts with wider human society

The County of Shropshire and the town of Shrewsbury have a long association with the British military, and there is a wide range of relevant and accessible source material relating to the study of British military history deposited locally and regionally.

The course is delivered by an experienced team of tutors who have specialised research interests and publications within this field. Teaching is flexible, but based upon lectures, seminars, workshops and individual tutorials, which are normally scheduled during the daytime.

Each taught module will be assessed by means of written coursework of approximately 4,000 words, comprising essays, reports, reviews and oral presentations. The Research Dissertation will be between 16,000 and 18,000 words in length.
