design and manage the simulation in early March Non seminar students from all programs may participate in the spring crisis simulation exercise Extracurricular Activities Extracurricular activities 55 such as film seminars speaker series Defense Against the Dark Arts You Were There Series and field trips to military installations are an important supplement to the program Staff Rides The Strategic Studies program has planned and executed a large number of trips and staff rides since 2000 Our many excursions allow on site views of military operations historical events and museums that offer perspectives a classroom may not deliver The staff ride tradition stretches back to the 19th century Prussian General Staff and concentrates on more than just operational history rather a staff ride will focus on important issues of leadership and decision making that have applications well beyond the field of strategic studies Students faculty and distinguished guests examine battles campaigns and occasionally entire wars in order to actively engage in a dialogue with history Click here 56 for more information on staff rides and to see what campaigns we have studied in the past and watch

  • The Ph.D. in Strategic Studies at SAIS | SAIS
    have five years to complete the degree from the date of taking the first of these examinations All Ph D students that I supervise must take a number of Strategic Studies courses including the Research Seminar Comprehensive exams take a full year or slightly more three sets at six month intervals The writing of a dissertation normally takes more than one full year without other distractions My doctoral students are required to undertake original scholarly work using primary sources The level of effort they will be expected to put out is at least the same as that required to write a scholarly book A prospective Ph D candidate should therefore expect to do at least three years of full time graduate work at SAIS quite apart from the time required to complete the dissertation It is furthermore virtually impossible to write a dissertation while holding down even a half time job no matter how supportive one s employer The SAIS Ph D is in international relations not political science or history which are the university departments in which a prospective student may wish to teach There is no opportunity for apprentice teaching in Strategic Studies since all classes are taught by me or by adjunct faculty I therefore discourage students interested in a purely academic career from applying to Strategic Studies for a Ph D Mid career students moreover often underrate the extreme difficulty of breaking into an academic career late in one s thirties or forties Those who see a Ph D as merely a useful credential for getting a job winning a promotion or becoming involved in the making of government policy should not apply to the program Who should apply to the SAIS Ph D program with a view to working in Strategic Studies Obviously someone who

  • Some thoughts on writing | SAIS
    perceives them using headings if appropriate Do not tell em what you are going to tell em tell em and tell em what you told em That style suits preaching or instruction of the very young but not the writing of essays Make your introduction and conclusion count The former should set up the topic for your reader while the latter should pull together the strands of your arguments with an original and attractive twist The reader should come away satisfied that you have treated the subject in a complete fashion but also aware of issues that require further reflection Think about what words mean Mixed metaphors jargon and anachronism stem from an inability to visualize one s prose Bad writing is not merely painful to read but difficult to understand and usually reflects either laziness or confusion on the part of the author Use the active voice Nouns and verbs not adjectives and adverbs constitute the skeleton and sinew of written work Avoid the verb to be whenever possible Cite accurately No academic sin save outright falsification brings harsher consequences than plagiarism Follow meticulously a standard footnoting guide Turabian s A Manual for Writers and the Chicago Manual of Style are best Proper citation allows others to verify your work or pursue their own research it also enables you to retrace your steps or explore further old lines of investigation Do not patronize either your reader or your subject Shun the fulsome compliment as well as the lordly sneer imagine that your reader has little disposition to take anything you say for granted Do not assume that any one other writers members of your audience or individuals who have taken part in past events is a fool or a dullard You may of course come to such a conclusion
