Military Sociology Studies

The discipline analyses military science as a holistic synthesis of the theory and practice of the development and employment of armed forces in peace, crises and armed conflict. The epistemology of military science analyses armed conflict and other forms of military action, military terminology, laws, sayings and principles regulating the use of armed forces, methods of military science, interaction between military science and other disciplines. The course will also embrace polemist studies and the knowledge of military sociology which, together with military technical, military scientific and medical knowledge, make up the system of military science. In the field of military sociology various specialities will be offered within elective seminars, dealing with the systems of military defence, military games (planning, implementation and analysis), operation theory, military strategy, military logistics, the theory of armed forces development, features of contemporary armed conflicts, military leadership, military intelligence service, and relations between military, civil society and political state.
