About

The Master of Defense and Strategic Studies at University of Texas El Paso is designed to provide an in-depth, critical examination of the major defense and security challenges facing the United States now and in the future.

Overview

Defense and Strategic Studies at University of Texas El Paso is a globally minded program diving into security dynamics across our world, helping students interrogate and understand those issues, and how they relate to the U.S.’ national security. Particular attention will be placed on the development of strategy and the ability to think strategically, both in theory and practice, to examine and address complex security and defense-related problems.
