National Security Studies Program

MA in Political Science, Specialization in National Security Studies


The non-thesis program consists of 36 weekly semestrial hours of study, including 9 mandatory courses (4 hours each) and a final exam/ graduation project. The program is structured, and studies will take place two days a week. All courses will be semestrial and will be taught during two consecutive semesters from October through September (fall semester, spring semester and summer semester) over one calendar year.



The grades of the different courses will count for 70 percent of the final grade. A final assignment - a research paper or an equivalent final integrative examination - will count for 30 percent.

Exceptional students may want to take advantage of the International School's Hebrew and/or Arabic courses, although it is not required and is not included in the tuition. Please see the International School website for more details.
