Science, Technology, and International Security

The Certificate in Science, Technology and International Security is no longer accepting applicants. Students presently in the program will be able to finish as normal.

The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Science, Technology, and International Security (STIS) draws on academics and seasoned practitioners in cyber operations, environmental sciences, biological sciences, big data, energy policy, security studies, intelligence, and government in order to provide students with the tools to analyze the security threats and opportunities inherent in scientific and technological developments.

Cyber attacks, weapons proliferation, drones, climate change, and energy security, are just a few of the science and technology-related security issues that affect the security of the United States and the world today. The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Science, Technology, and International Security brings together courses from many different disciplines into a highly customizable program. Our goal is to help students excel and advance in their careers by helping them gain an understanding of how science and technology issues play in the security realms of defense, diplomacy, and intelligence.

This program is useful for students who are interested in science and technology in national security or international security context but who come from a social science or humanities background. This program is also useful for students with an established background in a science or technology field who wish to make themselves more marketable in the national security or international security field. Such students may be able to take advanced electives.
