National Security and Diplomacy


The national security and diplomacy track of study provides students with the knowledge and intellectual skills necessary for contributing to the protection of the national society in an anarchical international system. The program emphasizes the need for dynamic threat assessment capabilities (both intelligence collection and analysis), the role of strategy and the use of force in international politics, alternative means of addressing potential dangers, and the concepts and tools necessary for resolving international disputes and conflicts. Instruction in the national security track recognizes that the security of the US is intertwined with the security of other international actors. Therefore, the program addresses both international and national security issues, such as diplomacy, gender and security, transnational threats, intelligence, counterterrorism, military strategy, and international organizations. Individuals selecting this track are expected to have some knowledge of international history and politics.

Committed to realizing the noble vision of its namesake, George Bush, 41st President of the United States, the mission of the Bush School of Government and Public Service is to educate principled leaders in public and international affairs, conduct research, and perform service.

President George H.W. Bush
