The programme has a sharp focus—the role of military power—but to understand the dimensions of strategy, it is necessary to know something about politics, international relations, history, economics, psychology, sociology and geography, as well as technology, logistics, force structure and tactics.
This programme is designed to help students better comprehend the application of military power, as well as the coordination and direction of different resources to achieve political outcomes. It aims to develop broadly educated, politically sensitive, defence and security practitioners as well as defence and security sensitive civilians who have the following skill sets:
- A nuanced understanding of the pressing national, transnational and regional strategic challenges and issues in the Indo-Pacific;
- A systematic understanding of the security interactions between states and non-state actors in an increasingly globalised world; and
The critical thinking skills essential for the crafting of the national security policies and defence strategies, as well as private sector security policies.
