Department of
Defence and Strategic Studies
The department of Defence and Strategic Studies (DSS) was established in September 1980 with the dual aim of sponsoring
academic studies in the field of Strategic Studies and promoting a culture of research amongst a mix of military and civilian
students who would be trained in Critical Discourse Development and Policy Analysis. Since its inception, the DSS has made a
significant contribution in the development of a community of experts equipped with requisite academic knowledge and
analytical ability to evaluate national, regional and international strategic environment, policies and security dynamics.
Over the years, the department has awarded M.Sc. degrees to 880 civilians and 138 officers of the Armed forces. The
graduates have produced 84 well researched and original M.Sc. theses and over 900 seminar papers. The masters' level
research has been written on wide-ranging subjects in the fields of defense, strategic and security studies with a vast majority
of the theses dealing with policy-oriented issues of contemporary strategic importance. Since 1988, the department has been
running M.Phil. programme and a few years ago it also began offering admissions to a limited number of students to a
doctoral degree.
During the course of their studies, students regularly interact through seminars, workshops, lectures and conferences
organized by the department or other institutions with experts in their field. The students also undertake study tours to
various institutions, leading research organizations, think tanks and higher defence organizations, such as the NHQ, AHQ, HIT,
POF-Wah, JSHQ as well as to the SPD for briefings and learning. The department is also initiating an institutionalized and
formal Internship programwith leading national think tanks for its students.
