In January 2016, the Centre for Defence Studies (CDS) at King’s College London launched a unique National Security Studies modular course at post-graduate accredited level.

Reflecting the evolution and broadening of national security in recent decades, this course has been specifically designed to bring together UK security policy practitioners, representatives from the private sector and policy-interested postgraduate students to consider this developing subject area.

The course is the first stage in the development of an MA in National Security Studies to be offered by King’s in the near future. The module will be delivered by a team of academics and policy practitioners experienced in professional training courses and matters of national security, led by Professor John Gearson, Professor of National Security Studies.
