MSc in War and Psychiatry

One year full-time or two years part-time

War and conflict are two of the constants of modern life. They have played a major part in recent history and continue to dominate much of the international agenda. Whilst we may deplore this and do all we can to prevent future wars, it is important to explore what psychological effect they have on both soldiers and civilians. This course is designed to explore 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.

How both soldiers and civilians prepare themselves, cope during times of conflict, and adjust to peacetime life are core issues of the MSc War & Psychiatry. Find out more from Professor Edgar Jones; Programme Leader of this ground-breaking programme at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience at King’s College London.
