The Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy

The Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy addresses large-scale, long-term strategic challenges of statecraft, politics, and social change. The program focuses on the study of history, classics, and political thought as essential tools for understanding the contemporary world.

Grand Strategy explores how to achieve large ends with limited means, whether in military conflict, foreign policy, domestic politics, or social movements. The program engages security questions from a wide range of perspectives, including national security, global security, and social security. The program emphasizes interaction between academics and practitioners, and between participants of differing political views. Grand Strategy aims to develop students’ capacities not only to analyze the past and present, but to act as responsible, thoughtful leaders and citizens of the future.
