International and Military History degree offered at Lancaster University enables you to understand how the field of international history has been transformed, moving away from a western-centric perspective and a focus on high politics to integrate the perspective of the Global South, while also focusing on ‘lesser’ political actors and people. Military History, meanwhile, has grown from its original focus on strategy, battles, and military leaders to incorporate the study of the political, economic, societal, and cultural dimensions of war.
These disciplinary developments are embedded in Lancaster's Masters in International and Military History, which draws from the History Department's particular expertise in war and inter-state relations from the ancient world to the present day, in order to explore these themes across time.Whether you are seeking to develop professional expertise or pursue a research career, you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to engage with key debates and advance new arguments, informed by a global perspective and a broad chronological understanding.
