The Johns Hopkins MA in Global Security Studies provides a framework for you to analyze military challenges, explore the intricacies of economic interdependence, and recognize the security implications of energy dependence and resource scarcity. Classes are designed to provide you with individual attention, encourage you to participate, and challenge you to analyze the international security environment.
As part of your studies, you’ll produce a thesis portfolio that showcases your ability to examine important political and policy questions. The thesis will help you hone your research skills, improve your analytical abilities, sharpen your communication style, and prep you to become a subject-matter expert. The program will also give you front-row access to vibrant speaker and symposia series, as well as a full calendar of events that reinforce critical themes in global security and encourage you to network with other professionals in your field—and outside the classroom.

Sold Out? Iraq, the CIA, and the Kurds: An Interview with Dr. Bryan Gibson
Our newest faculty member, Dr. Bryan Gibson, has just recorded an interview with the International Spy Museum as part of the Museum’s popular Spycast series. In the interview, Dr. Gibson discusses his book, Sold Out? Iraq, the Kurds, U.S. Foreign Policy and the Cold War (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015) and explains how Iraq should be considered a Cold War battleground every bit as much as Cuba, Vietnam and Afghanistan. Check it out at the International Spy Museum’s website.
