George Mason University’s 2015 Summer Program in International Security offers professionals, students, and faculty in related fields an opportunity to get up to speed or stay up to date on a range of important topics in a relaxed setting at Mason’s Arlington campus. Courses are taught by world-renowned experts from the Mason faculty, as well as from the private and public sectors.
The program is divided into three weeks, each of which focuses on a different “big” topic in the dynamic world of international security. This year’s focus areas are global health security; terrorism; and chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) weapons. This year’s courses are:
CBRN Weapons: Science & Policy (July 6-8, 2015)
21st Century Terrorism: Emerging Trends and Evolving Tactics (July 13-15, 2015)
Pandemics, Bioterrorism, & International Security (July 22-24, 2015)
The Summer Program in International Security is designed for professionals and academics from all backgrounds whose responsibilities intersect with the realm of international security broadly defined, including those responsible for preventing, preparing for, responding to, or predicting threats posed by terrorism, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and/or pandemics. Past participants have included policy makers; security analysts from the government, private sector, and non-government organizations; executives from private industry; public health officials; law enforcement officers; homeland security and emergency management practitioners; military personnel; researchers in the life sciences; media professionals; and academics from many disciplines.
Not only does the Summer Program in International Security provide great learning opportunities, it also provides an excellent way to broaden your professional network. The program attracts professionals from the full spectrum of public and private sector backgrounds, both domestic and international, and provides opportunities for participants to socialize and build relationships.
