What makes a good general? This War Studies Advanced Program explores different models and theories of generalship. Using Carl von Clausewitz and Major-General J.F.C. Fuller’s models as a framework, students will examine the responsibilities and actions of generals from Ulysses S. Grant to David Petraeus.

Advanced War Studies Courses are open only to alumni of the basic War Studies course. These sessions are offered in the winter and summer, and focus either on a national security challenge or on a historical conflict. Learn more about the War Studies Program.
