Academic Info/Programs: GMAP

Background

The purpose of the Global Master of Arts Program (GMAP) is to improve the quality and professionalism of the international affairs workforce. This program is open to all mid-career military and civilian personnel serving in international affairs who have at least 8 years of professional experience.

The Defense Institute of Security Cooperation Studies (DISCS) has been appointed by the Director, DSCA to serve as the executive agent for the GMAP. GMAP is a 12-month course of study in international affairs leading to a Global Master of Arts degree from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University located in Medford, MA. GMAP is specifically designed for mid-career level professionals and is intended to enhance the skills of selected civilian and military personnel working in international affairs positions.

Temporary Suspension of GMAP

As the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) is nearing completion of the Agency Strategic Plan, 2015-2020, a few areas regarding the SC Community Programs have been identified as requiring further analysis and review. GMAP is one of those areas. Therefore, while the analysis is being completed, the DSCA sponsorship for classes which were scheduled to begin in March and July of 2015 will be suspended. Students currently enrolled with graduation dates in 2015 will continue normally. When the analysis is complete, we will advise the community on the status of GMAP.

Commandant's Message

I'm hoping that you've not had issues finding us! As you can tell by our new website -- The Defense Institute of Security Assistance Management (DISAM) transitioned to the Defense Institute of Security Cooperation Studies (DISCS). This became effective 1 July 2016, and comes as DSCA more closely aligns the schoolhouse, its curriculum, and its mission priorities with DOD strategic guidance, and DSCA's vision for the future. The name change reflects DSCA's focus on full spectrum capability building and that the schoolhouse's mandate for training the workforce has expanded beyond Security Assistance to include all of Security Cooperation.

There are a number of transitional issues in progress and we will work with various constituencies and other supporting organizations to be as seamless as possible in our support to you. As you can see, the Institute’s website has a new URL of www.iscs.dsca.mil. In terms of you contacting DISCS, please note that "Group e-mail addresses" (such as the Registrar’s Office) will change as soon as we can work through the IT wickets, but old group email addresses should work after the change for some time. All email addresses and phone numbers for institute personnel remain the same as they were prior to changing our name to the Defense Institute of Security Cooperation Studies. Note that there have been no changes to course designations or names of the courses offered by the Institute.

This is an exciting time for the Defense Institute of Security Cooperation Studies and we looking forward to continuing our long-standing service to the security cooperation workforce for years to come as we keep pace with the environment impacting all of you as our constituents.

Sincerely,

Dr. Ron Reynolds
Commandant
