NDISC Certificate

Political Science majors are encouraged to apply for the Notre Dame International Security Center NDISC Certificate Program. Those selected for this competitive program gain access to specialized courses, research support, internship funding, and dedicated mentoring by accomplished thought leaders in the field. 

NDISC seeks to educate exceptional undergraduate students in the area of international security, broadly defined. The foundation of the International Security Studies Certificate focuses on bridging the policy-scholarly gap.

Upon completion of the International Security Studies Program, undergraduate students will be well prepared for careers in policy and academia.

Students wishing to participate in the program should review the requirements and apply in the spring of their sophomore year. 

"I want to see NDISC be the bridge from Notre Dame to the Pentagon and
Washington and other parts of the national security bureaucracy."
