MA in Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies

Building on twenty years of acknowledged leadership in education and research to combat the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and terrorism, the Graduate School of International Policy and Management is pleased to inaugurate the Master of Arts in Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies (MANPTS) degree. This program draws upon the strengths of the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) and the Monterey Terrorism Research and Education Program (MonTREP).

The MA in Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies curriculum provides students with the in-depth knowledge and specialized professional skills necessary to analyze weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and other security threats posed by both state and non-state actors and to develop effective strategies to address these challenges. Emphasizing the synergy between the control of WMD and the analysis of terrorism, the MA in Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies degree will become the program of choice for the professional training of scholarly and policy specialists in these fields.
