The MSc War & Psychiatry allows successful applicants to develop skills and knowledge about the way individuals respond to psychological trauma. Drawing on multidisciplinary expertise, students can compare the experiences of different nations to identify both theoretical and practical elements. The programme is ideal for careers in military psychiatry and related NGO, emergency and anti-terrorist services.
- Students understand the major principles and issues of military psychiatry.
- Students learn not only about the psychological effects on soldiers fighting on the front line but also how civilians cope when subjected to the trauma of war or acts of terrorism.
- Students develop knowledge and skills not necessarily provided by clinical training.
