Course description

The International War Studies degree program delves into the origins, dynamics, and contexts of violent conflicts on both national and international stages. It explores their history, progression, and outcomes. The program places a strong emphasis on military history, the cultural history of political violence, and military sociology, each with its own unique methods and theories. Starting from the early modern period, the program examines the intricate relationships between the state, society, and the military, continuing this analysis up to the present day. The primary focus is on modern history, particularly the 19th and 20th centuries. This comprehensive approach ensures a deep understanding of how these elements have evolved and interacted over time.

Qualification Requirements

Applying for a master’s degree requires that you hold an undergraduate degree, such as a bachelor’s degree. Your undergraduate degree must be in a field relevant to International War Studies, such as history, political science, sociology or a related subject. Proof of 40 credit points in one of these subject areas is sufficient. If your transcript comes from a system that does not use credit points, then the joint Examining Board will make a decision about the equivalence of academic performance. Because the master’s degree program is also conducted in English, we require proof of English language skills that correspond at least to Level C 1 of the Common European Framework for Languages. German language skills are not required.
