School of Military Science School of Military Science

The School of Military Science was established as a joint curriculum between UNAM and the Ministry of Defence in 2007, to offer a Master of Arts in Security and Strategic Studies (MASSS).

It mainly enrolls officials and officers from the Ministry of Defence, Namibian Defence Force, Government Ministries and other Security institutions.

In 2012, the Postgraduate Diploma in Security and Strategic Studies was also initiated as a 'bridging' course to prepare students for MASSS degree course.

The School also offers the Bachelor of Military Science (Honours) degree with three specialisations namely: Aeronautical, Army and Nautical. The Nautical specialization is divided into three fields: Nautical-Electronics, Nautical-Mechanical and Nautical-Weapon Systems.
