What makes countries, ethnic groups or individuals go to war? How has warfare changed with the introduction of new technology? How has propaganda been used? Can we learn anything from history? The University of Kent is in a unique geographic position to study war and its effects. Canterbury and Kent have been ‘Front-Line Britain’ in British military history, and contain significant military sites, ranging from Roman forts to Cold War nuclear bunkers. We have easy access to the continent, particularly the battlefields of the First and Second World Wars. Our modules reflect the range of our research interests, from war and culture to the evolution of tank warfare. At Kent, we believe military history should form the main thrust of our programme, an area often sidelined by similar courses. In addition to War Studies modules, the diverse pool of History modules remains accessible to our students.
