MA in Security and Defence Studies
Conditional upon approval by the Ontario Universities Council on Quality Assurance and the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.
The Master of Arts in Security and Defence Studies (MASD) is an interdisciplinary, French and English, practice-oriented degree that provides students with a comprehensive approach to security and defense. Because working in this field requires an understanding of the connections between international, national and human security, and because security and defence issues touch upon several different disciplines, the MASD will offer an interdisciplinary degree that examines the multiple dimensions of security as well as the practical challenges of preventing and responding to threats. Students will also benefit from unique opportunities to interact with Ottawa based security professionals. Students will emerge from this multi-faceted degree with an advanced understanding of contemporary issues pertaining to international, national, and human security, as well as the analytical and practical skills needed to succeed in the security and defence fields.
