    ACADEMIC FOCUS:  Ethnic conflict
    and Israeli security

    “I've always worked in an
    interdisciplinary way, doing
    archival research and combining
    it with theory so I thought it
    would be a good combination."

  • CAROL-ANN TITUS

    FIRST-YEAR PHD STUDENT
    ACADEMIC FOCUS: 
    Canadian intelligence

    "I thought CMSS might broaden
    my thinking; broaden my horizons and
    allow me to think more strategically
    about the bigger picture, as opposed to the
    day-to-day intelligence and terrorism issues
    that I deal with at work." 

  • ANNASTASSIA POUKALENKO

    FIRST-YEAR PHD STUDENT
    ACADEMIC FOCUS: 

    Naval affairs, historical and contemporary

    "CMSS as an institution as a

    easy to find in this country."

  • SAIRA BANO

    FOURTH-YEAR PHD CANDIDATE
    ACADEMIC FOCUS: 
    Nuclear non-proliferation

    Dissertation focuses on military leadership
    and education and the processes of military

    historian extraordinaire, Dr. David Bercuson,
    agreed to be my supervisor there was little
    chance I was going anywhere else."
