SEST 501 - Grand Strat/Military Ops
This course seeks to give students an understanding of the elements of grand strategy and insight into military operations that will provide a baseline of knowledge for their work toward their Masters in Security Studies and beyond.  The course will explore the following issues in detail:  1. The development of national decisions to use military force, the derivation of warfighting strategy and strategic aims that follow, and the operational plan and execution of campaigns to achieve them; 2. The civil-military relationship in the development of strategy and the execution of campaigns; 3. The evolution of operational capability over time and the evolution of the relative roles air, land, and seapower; and 4. The differing demands of conventional and unconventional warfare on the conduct of operations.
