Georgetown University’s Center for Security Studies (CSS) in the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service offers an expansive curriculum, in-depth research and critical dialogue on security issues. Former Director Michael E. Brown created the Center in 2000 with a mission to produce a new generation of analysts, policymakers, and scholars fully knowledgeable about the range of international and national security problems and foreign policy issues of the 21st Century. The academic pillar of the Center for Security Studies, the Security Studies Program (SSP), is the nation’s preeminent professional Master of Arts program devoted to security studies. When Stephen Gibert established the National Security Studies Program (NSSP) in 1977 as a "defense MBA," the original classrooms met in the Pentagon and the degree was an M.A. in Government with a certificate in Security Studies. In 1984, the Master of Arts in Security Studies degree was established, and all classes had moved over to Georgetown Universitys main campus by 1994. In contrast to programs in security studies at other universities, the SSP offers courses on a broad range of security topics. Courses address the many facets of security today, ranging from broad examinations of strategy and foreign policy to more focused classes on terrorism, intelligence, defense planning, military operations and the security problems of different world regions. Younger SSP students apply their recent theoretical undergraduate education to practical policy applications. More seasoned students, professionals in the military, intelligence and defense contracting sectors enhance their practical experience with critical thinking, analytical writing and theory-based solutions.
