The MISS (Master of Arts International Security Studies) is intended to serve as an intensive preparation for future executives in government and military services on an academic level. Its design is based on a thorough empirical analysis of the requirements for security policy practitioners and consultants, which relied heavily on the experiences gained by the alumni of the Universität der Bundeswehr München and the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies. They contributed important insights into the educational needs of leaders in international security policy institutions.
The program provides students with an extensive, policy-focused and inter-disciplinary knowledge of security studies, international law, strategic studies, regional studies, terrorism studies, and studies on stability operations and civil security. This great variety of soft- and hard-power topics enables students to apply a comprehensive approach to International Security.
The program is a post-graduate program for security policy practitioners offered jointly by the Universität der Bundeswehr München (German Armed Forces University Munich, UniBwM) and the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies (GCMC), the U.S. Department of Defense's European Regional Center and a partnership with the German Ministry of Defense. The program takes place entirely at the Marshall Center in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. This German-American Program is directed at professionals in foreign and security policy from the public and private sector who already possess a first degree and some years of subsequent experience in the field. It comprises traditional academic modules taught by UniBwM professors and selected international faculty, as well as the policy-oriented programs and seminars of the Marshall Center, which sees its participants study alongside other government officials from over 96 countries. A unique feature of the program is therefore that it combines the policy-oriented programs and seminars of the Marshall Center with traditional academic modules provided by the UniBwM. This makes it possible to give the students a sound academic foundation in their subject area, while at the same time extending and deepening their knowledge of the most relevant problems and solutions in the field. Through exchange with the wide range of countries and services studying alongside MISS (Master of Arts International Security Studies) students in Marshall Center courses, students are also offered a chance to get unique insights into both perceptions and approaches of partner nations.
