About

Welcome to the National Security Studies (NSS) program at California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB). We are one of a few graduate programs in the country that is devoted to the study of U.S. national security, and the only one in the California State University system. The program was founded in 1986.

Overview

The National Security Studies program at California State University San Bernardino houses the CSU Intelligence Community Center of Academic Excellence (CSU-ACE).

Our fully accredited Master’s program (M.A.) provides a comprehensive curriculum with foundations in strategy and strategic studies for students interested in pursuing careers in service for the U.S. government (USG).
