About Air, Space and Cyber Power Studies at Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Wolverhampton

This Masters course allows you to explore many of the key elements of Air, Space and Cyber Power through focusing on theoretical approaches, historical case studies, contemporary conflicts, strategic thought and cultural and societal attitudes to air, space and cyber power. You will study these themes in depth under the care of renowned tutors who have a keen interest in and expert knowledge of these fields.

You will undertake six modules across two years of part-time study conducted entirely through on-line distance learning methods. Your studies will culminate in a piece of independent research in the form of a 12,000-15,000-word dissertation on a topic based on one or more of the elements covered in the course. Guidance in this undertaking will come from your appointed dissertation supervisor.

The two core modules Air Power Theory and Practice: c.1900 to 1990 and Air, Space and Cyber Power 1990 to the Present will provide the key elements to understanding, analysing and interpreting the historical, contemporary and future implications and challenges in the employment of air, space and cyber power. Particular emphasis is placed on the central issues of control of the air; intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; attack capability and air mobility.

The programme of study will also offer eight 12-week option modules from which students choose four. The option modules will provide a range of options across international relations and politics, military history, and strategic studies. The scope of the content will cover elements of regional conflicts, international law, the ethics of war and conflict, cultural aspects of war, low-intensity operations, humanitarian intervention, coalition and multi-national warfare, inter-service relations and operations, media and propaganda, intelligence, and the economics of warfare.

The programme is intended and structured both for students with an interest in conflict studies, international politics and military history, as well as defence industry professionals and military personnel from national and international backgrounds. This Master’s degree will enhance and underpin the skills of those already in defence and air power related professions but will also develop those skills and outcomes generally associated with study at postgraduate level.
