MSc War and Psychiatry
Lead by Programme Director Professor Edgar Jones, the MSc in War and Psychiatry is an internationally recognised qualification that seeks to place military psychiatry in its appropriate cultural, historical and social context.
Run by the Institute of Psychiatry but drawing on expertise from the Department of War Studies (School of Social Science and Public Policy), the MSc is designed to explore what effect war and conflict have on both soldiers and civilians, more so in an age where both dominate the international agenda.
Psychiatric casualties are as inevitable as physical ones and require equal attention and understanding. This course will seek to:
- explain how people protect themselves against extreme or prolonged stress
- to analyse their consequences
- and to discuss what can be done to mitigate or resolve psychological disorders experienced in conflict
The MSc in War and Psychiatry is based at the Institute of Psychiatry and can be taken either in one year (full-time) or two years (part-time).
