The Department is unique in the UK and one of the few university departments in the world devoted exclusively to the study of war as a human phenomenon.
The Department is a multidisciplinary institution devoted to the study of all aspects of war and conflict and the broad remit of international relations.
The Department has an excellent reputation as a graduate training institution and is recognised by the British Academy, the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Economic and Social Research council as a training institution for War Studies.
The Department places great emphasis on recruiting leading experts who bring with them not only a wealth of knowledge and ideas but an extensive and continually growing network of links with other departments, think-tanks, organisations, policy-making bodies and institutions.
The unrivalled location in the heart of London beside the River Thames brings outstanding advantages. Students enjoy excellent academic, social and cultural opportunities. The department is close to the seat of Government, the City, the Imperial War Museum, the National Maritime Museum, the Royal Courts of Justice and the Inns of Court.
Students have access to visiting academics, serving officers, government ministers and other experts who give regular public lectures and seminars.
