Description

Our modules reflect the range of our research interests, from war and culture to the evolution of tank warfare. At the University of Kent, we believe military history should form the main thrust of our Military History (Hons) 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.
