Recognizing the need to confront security threats facing the global community, George Mason University’s International Security Program (I-SEC) prepares professionals to assess and manage traditional security threats and the emerging security challenges of the 21st century.
I-SEC provides a firm grounding in public-private and international collaborative responses to unconventional security challenges, ranging from threats like ebola, tsunamis, the use of drones, transnational crime, terrorism, illicit trade, proliferation of emerging technologies and WMD, and corruption, to state fragility, civil war and ethnic and sectarian conflict. With its global and multidisciplinary approach to questions of human security, the program provides students the opportunity to grapple with a new generation of economic, political, environmental, and science and technology-driven issues.
