About the Course
U.S. Army War College (USAWC) Distance Education Program (DEP): The Distance
Education Program consists of a series of eight primary online courses, an elective or
directed research project, and two summer resident courses, taken over a two-year period.
Each course is composed of numerous lessons. The lesson is the basic unit of instruction
and consists of selected readings and other educational materials that support
accomplishment of course objectives. Course performance is evaluated through writing
forum participation and exercise requirements. Individual student requirements are
subjective in nature, based on required study and designed to ensure that course
objectives are attained. Attendance at both scheduled resident courses of instruction is
required for successful completion of the curriculum. The USAWC DEP is a two-year
on-line accredited program resulting in a Masters Degree of Strategic Studies (MSST).
There will be no tuition costs. All TAD costs for the in-residence sessions must be funded by the selected participant's unit/office. Selected applicants will be required to attend two mandatory two-week in residence portions (1 per year). There is also a two-day orientation in May 2017 prior to the course start. The orientation session is not mandatory, however, it is highly recommended. This program will NOT be funded by COMDT (CG-128) or AFC 56 funds.
