PhD in Strategic Studies

CMSS is in the process of applying to the government to pause admission to the PhD program to allow for revisioning of the program. A formal announcement will be forthcoming, once approval has been received. This will not affect any current students or graduates of the program.

Our PhD program addresses the critical need that exists for analysts who can study and assess the multitude of security threats that now exist, emphasizing the importance of both a theoretical and policy perspective.
