Military History Center

A Message from the Director:

Welcome to the Military History Center (MHC) at the University of North Texas, where we are building one of the premier military history programs in the world. We've hired great military historians in the forefront of their fields in teaching and research, and offer a rich course rotation for graduate students and undergraduates on the great conflicts of history as well as war and society, military thought, and diplomacy. The Center pulls together our own faculty and student fellows as well as advisory fellows such as Niall Ferguson, Hew Strachan, and Dennis Showalter. We "bookend" our academic year with two major speaker program. In the fall, we host the hugely successful Alfred Hurley Military History Seminar, which has been an annual event in North Texas for thirty-six years and counting. Recent speakers have included Michael Howard, General Anthony Zinni, David Kilcullen, Jeremy Black, and Victor Davis Hanson. In the spring, the MHC hosts the War Studies Symposium, in which we examine a major issue in war studies through the eyes of a prominent historian.

At the UNT Military History Center we offer a PhD. in military history. Here we study, analyze and discuss the history and future of warfare in every era and culture.
