MSc. National Security and Strategic Studies


The Master in National Security and Strategic Studies serves, not only to complement the professional training of the senior managers of the security sector, but in many instances, provides them with the opportunity of exposure to the rigours of Graduate Studies in a field very applicable to their day to day activities.

The educational emphasis is placed on a policy oriented approach, as well as on critical examination of the theories and concepts that have influenced regional strategic, defence and anti-crime policies.Particular attention is paid to emerging strategic trends that pose long-term challenges to Caribbean security as a region and individual countries, and raise complex trade-offs for policy makers.

The Programme aims at providing a better understanding of:

  •   Agency roles and functions
  •   The domestic, regional and international settings of national security policy
  •   The concepts of military threats
  •   Issues of crime and violence
  •   Terrorism, particularly narco- terrorism
  •   Crisis management
  •   Military alliances
  •   Third level human rights as security concerns
  •   National security policy and programme
