Graduate School of National Security on campus Monday April 23.

Join us Monday, April 23 at 12:30 in Adirondack House Library for this informational meeting.

The Daniel Morgan Graduate School of National Security (DMGS) offers a professional and executive education that is easily tailored to students who wish to pursue a career in national security or those who currently work in the national security community. DMGS’ curriculum offerings also provide needed skills that both intersect with and are applicable to other communities such as the commercial corporate world and law enforcement. Through our three programs: National Security, Intelligence, and Managing Disruption and Violence, DMGS supports the intellectual foundations of American security policy by ensuring our education prioritizes policies and outcomes rather than traditional academic structures. DMGS enables professionals to address the national security challenges of the new century by encouraging them to rethink tradition and assess new forms of policy analysis.
