Spend two weeks in Washington, D.C. immersed in the theory, practice, and organization of war. This all-expenses-paid, intensive summer program run by the Institute for the Study of War will engage advanced undergraduate students in small-group seminars taught by distinguished senior leaders in the national security and military communities, including active duty and retired generals as well as leading intellectuals. Previous speakers include Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey, General Stanley McChrystal (Ret.), and General David Petraeus (Ret.), and the former Deputy Chief of Mission to Baghdad and Islamabad, among others. The dedicated faculty is comprised of Dr. Kim Kagan, Dr. Fred Kagan, and LTG James Dubik (Ret.).
As a Hertog War Studies student, you will learn about military history in a hands-on environment, including a battlefield staff-ride to Gettysburg in order to explore the relationships between terrain, timing, and decision-making in war. By the end of the program, you will have mastered the basics of military theory, understand the relationship between the armed forces and political leaders, and will have learned the technical language of military force.
