U.S. Naval War College. The Naval War College is a Professional Military Education (PME) institution serving the nation, the Department of Defense, and the U.S. Navy. U.S. and selected international graduates earn Master of Arts degrees in National Security & Strategic Studies or Defense & Strategic Studies accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education. The College educates and develops future leaders through the development of strategic perspective, critical thinking, and cultural awareness, as well as enhancing the capability to advise senior leaders and policy makers. The College also helps to define the future Navy and its roles and missions; supports combat readiness; strengthens global maritime partnerships; and promotes ethics and leadership throughout the force. We are actively seeking candidates with diverse academic, demographic and professional backgrounds. More information on the college can be found at www.usnwc.edu

Strategic and Operational Research Department (SORD). The SORD produces innovative research and analysis for the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. interagency, and the broader national security community. It also generates new scholarship in security studies and actively participates in the broader academic community. The SORD is home to a number of specialized centers, institutes, and advanced research groups that foster deeper levels of research, analysis, and teaching on subjects of critical interest for the Navy: the China Maritime Studies Institute, the Cyber & Innovation Policy Institute, the Russia Maritime Studies Institute, and the Halsey and Brodie groups. The SORD’s faculty employ varied and multi-disciplinary approaches to national security issues, generating new knowledge for the Navy and the Department of Defense.

China Maritime Studies Institute (CMSI). CMSI scholars perform academic research using Chinese-language sources to develop deeper insight into key aspects of China’s growing maritime power. Research is published to inform the Navy and engage the nation; CMSI faculty also advise senior military leaders and civilian policymakers while educating the Navy’s next generation of strategic warfighters. CMSI faculty consist of a core group of full-time researchers and a larger body of affiliated members from the range of departments across the College. CMSI combines significant linguistic and technological resources with a close proximity to many of the United States’ leading academic institutions, creating relationships with unrivaled intellectual synergies. In seeking to more fully understand the complexities and implications of China’s emerging Indo-Pacific role, CMSI continues to seek expanded collaborative relationships with government research centers, civilian academic institutions, and other relevant organizations. These partnerships facilitate research on China’s development as a maritime power.
