The Strategic Studies Students' Consortium

The graduate student organization that represents the interests of the students of the Centre for Military, Security and Strategic Studies, and acts to foster a sense of community in the program.

Our Mission

The S3C is committed to serving the students of CMSS by promoting and serving their intellectual, academic, and social interests. The S3C aims to foster a welcoming and supportive environment for students to help them reach their full potential and provide an impactful graduate student experience.

Become Involved

S3C positions are typically held by second-year master’s students at CMSS. Elections are hosted at the end of April every year, and all students are strongly encouraged to participate and run for positions. Email us now! 

Securityscape

In 2021, S3C members created the Securityscape podcast, which discusses security issues that are part of the 21st century landscape with leading experts in the field. The podcast can now be found on Spotify, SoundCloud, and Twitter @securityscape.
