The Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences (SHSS) at Nova Southeastern University launched a new master’s degree program, a Master of Science in National Security Affairs (NSA) this summer. The new 33-credit M.S. in National Security Affairs in the Department of Multidisciplinary Studies (DMS) is designed to provide students with theoretical, research, and applied skills in the emerging academic field of national security affairs. Students in this program will build a core understanding of critical issues informing the field of national security today, including the assessment and analysis of the threat of terrorism in the US and beyond and the analysis of intelligence collection.

National security affairs is one of the fastest growing professions with opportunities in the public sector in the federal, state and local governments and in the private sector. This program is designed for professionals in the field seeking career advancement, those who aspire to enter the field, individuals in related professions, and those retired from the military and government seeking consulting and other positions. Examples of potential students include personnel in the military, federal, state and local governments, law enforcement, corporations, and academia, as well as recent college graduates.

Our core classes are taught by full-time NSU faculty as well as qualified part-time faculty iwho are actively engaged n the NSA field. We believe this brings a synergy of real-wordl experience and theoretical and research perspectives.

Following completion of the program’s 5 core courses, students will be able to choose one of a number of concentration tracks offered through the Graduate School of Humanities, and through partnership agreements with other academic units at NSU, including the Criminal Justice Institute and the Graduate School of Computer and Information Sciences. Students choosing the concentration in Cyber-terrorism offered in collaboration with the Graduate School of Computer and Information Sciences. To complete a concentration track successfully, students must take 4 courses in their chosen track (12 credits). Students will also complete 2 elective courses (6 credits) from any of the four concentration tracks offered through the program.

The 4 concentration tracks are the following:

  • Cyber-terrorism and Security (in partnership with the Graduate School of Computer and Information Sciences)
  • Criminal Justice (in partnership with the Criminal Justice Institute)
  • International Relations and Global Affairs (at the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences)
  • Homeland Security (at the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences)

Dear Judith, thank you very much for this information. I am very interested in this programme and would like to know  if the elearning (distance) system is also possible in the same programme. Best regards

Dear Judith,

Thank you for sharing this information about NSA. I will visit the website to learn more about the program. 



Interesting, but needs lots of  clarifications-especially for us in developing countries who want to strengthen our capacities further, but lack the needed resources to do so. Please provide information on who qualifies and the cost for the program. Please also provide information if there is a full scholarship and/or sponsorship.
