Duke American Grand Strategy

The Duke University Program in American Grand Strategy is a signature program for Duke students interested in national security policymaking. AGS is defined by its curriculum, with the hallmark AGS advanced seminar, speaker series, co-curricular active learning experiences, research opportunities and extensive alumni network.  The mission of AGS is to prepare the next generation of strategists by studying past generations and interacting with current strategic leaders. We are building a research community of faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates who are committed to deepening their understanding of America’s role in the world – past, present and future.

Johns Hopkins Kissinger Center

Part of the world’s leading school for the study of international affairs, the Kissinger Center is home to extraordinary scholars and seasoned practitioners in foreign policy and international security. Our mission is to generate and apply rigorous historical thinking to the most vexing global challenges. We do so in our teaching, by creating innovative new curricula, and in our research and writing. The Kissinger Center also acts as a bridge between the world of ideas and the world of action, bringing together leading thinkers and policymakers. We passionately believe that a deep understanding of the past – its trends, rhythms, its lessons – can provide powerful insights into the pressing threats and opportunities we face today.

Johns Hopkins Philip Merrill Center

The Johns Hopkins SAIS Philip Merrill Center for Strategic Studies operates as a center for strategic thought and education. It explores the relationship between politics and the many kinds of military power — from the use of terror by small, non-state groups, to the threatened use of nuclear weapons — aiming to promote dialogue and innovative research on pressing national security issues.
