This event is for U.S. Naval War College students, faculty and staff.

The National Security Decision Making (NSMD) course at the U.S. Naval War College (NWC) begins on November 10th, 2021 and concludes on February 25th, 2022. Please follow health and safety guidelines and refer to the orientation material for more guidance.

The National Security Affairs department at NWC teaches the NSMD course to senior-ranking U.S. and international military officers (O5-O6), along with nominated civilian applicants (GS14-GS15, or equivalent).

This course is designed to engage students in the current and future complexities of a rapidly evolving national and international security environment. The course offers a broad interdisciplinary curriculum in contemporary security studies that encompasses a diverse spectrum of global and regional issues and perspectives, but with emphasis on U.S. decision-making challenges and processes at the national strategic level.
