DEFENSE 101 – A SERIES OF TUTORIALS ON MILITARY AND DEFENSE INSTITUTIONS 

 

This year we are launching a non-credit series of briefings on military and defense issues, to help students who are new to the field of international security become more familiar with the institutional complexities of the Defense Department and the armed forces.  For three Saturdays early in the semester, Schar School faculty will provide one hour briefings on Zoom.  Later in the semester, Schar School PhD students are organizing additional sessions on related topics. 

 

You will need to register for each or all of the sessions, and will then be provided the Zoom link.   

 

You are invited to a Zoom meeting. 

When: Aug 28, 2021 10:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada) 

  

Register in advance for this meeting:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. 

 

I hope you’ll find this new initiative helpful and a useful complement to what you are learning in the classroom.
