Graduate Certificate in International Security

The Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies at Stanford University offers a three-course certificate program in International Security for professionals at national labs, international corporations, non-governmental organizations, members of the military and government, and others seeking a background in international treaties and global policy-making as context for their work.


To earn a graduate certificate in International Security, participants must successfully complete three Stanford graduate courses with a letter grade indicator average of 3.0 or better. The courses can be taken in any order. Each course is taught over an academic quarter of ten weeks and delivered via the Internet and television broadcast within the San Francisco Bay area by the Stanford Center for Professional Development.
