The Pilot Certificate Course, 2016

In 2016, the China/Strategic Studies Program built on the achievements in 2015 and introduced the pilot training program on Strategic Studies,  which was multidisciplinary in approach. The pilot course included such areas as military history, international relations, strategy, security studies, and leadership. The pilot course not only laid the foundations for the establishment of a strategic and foreign policy studies program at the University of the Philippines but also served to incubate possibilities of a certificate course and an eventual Master’s degree program.
