The Monterey Institute of International Studies has launched a new M.A. degree in Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies (MANPTS) This degree, the first of its kind in the United States, prepares students for careers in analyzing, preventing, and responding to terrorist threats and the spread of weapons of mass destruction.
Courses for this degree will be taught by faculty of the Graduate School of International Policy and Management; by policy, scientific, and technical specialists in the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) and the Monterey Terrorism Research and Education Program (MonTREP); and by experts invited from international organizations, government agencies, the private sector, and leading universities all over the world.
Students in this M.A. program may also gain practical experience through internships at international organizations or work as research assistants at CNS (cns.miis.edu) and MonTREP (www.miis.edu/academics/researchcenters/terrorism).
Placement assistance from our Center for Advising and Career Services helps graduating students find professional positions in government agencies and international organizations dedicated to combating terrorism or the spread of WMD as well as private firms specializing in security research, corporate security, or related fields.
For more information on this exciting new opportunity for professional education, please see the MANPTS page on the Monterey Institute (www.miis.edu/academics/programs/npts/) or email program chair Fred Wehling ([email protected]) or enrollment manager Devin Lueddeke ([email protected]).
