The School of International Graduate Studies (SIGS) conducts research and offers various education opportunities in international security studies. Programs seek to identify and address current and emerging security challenges and strengthen multilateral and bilateral defense cooperation between the United States and other nations.




 In addition to masters and doctoral degree program, SIGS offers a wide range of in-residence, non-degree short courses as well as off-site short courses and senior executive seminars. These topical courses provide senior leaders with a concise, academically grounded understanding of matters related to regional security threats, defense resources management, defense transformation, and combating terrorism.
SIGS offers a masters and doctoral degree program in security studies. The in-residence program is specifically designed for military officers, while the executive program is offered in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security National Preparedness Directorate and is open to local, state, federal, and tribal officials and NORTHCOM-sponsored officers.
