The Course

Studies in Grand Strategy  is the flagship course for the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy. Beginning in January, the two-semester course explores how to achieve large ends with limited means, whether in military conflict, foreign policy, domestic politics, or social movements. The course engages security questions from a wide range of perspectives, including national security, global security, and social security. It 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.

Applications for the 2020 Grand Strategy class are now closed. The application process for the 2021 Grand Strategy class will open mid-semester in Fall 2020.
