Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

An MA by Research in War and Society at Swansea enables you to undertake a substantial project led by your own passions and interests.

It represents a highly respected qualification which can present a pathway to a career in academia or widen your scope for employment in fields such as education, government or the private sector.

Your project will take one year full-time or two years part-time. It is suitable if you want to undertake a first research degree as an isolated culmination of taught studies, or if you are considering further research.

You will submit a thesis of up to 40,000 words, demonstrating original research with a significant contribution to the subject. This is followed by an oral examination of the thesis (a viva voce examination, or viva).

Our dynamic research environment is driven by committed staff who are all active researchers with a diverse range of interests and expertise including:

  • American Civil War
  • Spanish Civil War
  • the impact of war on society
  • conflict and legal structures
  • armed conflict and post-war reconstruction in Africa
  • European diplomatic history
  • Strategic Studies
  • A number of research groups also offer focus and community for staff and postgraduates:
  • The Conflict, Reconstruction and Memory Research Group (CRAM)
  • International Studies, Conflict and Security (ISCAS)

As a research student, you are required to attend skills and training courses. You deliver presentations to research students and staff at departmental seminars, and at the College of Arts and Humanities Postgraduate conference.
