The College of Strategic Sciences at Naif University for
Security Sciences was formed to teach strategic and future outlooks on pressing
issues, from a comprehensive view of security. This came as an actualization of
the concern of Arab states in all areas of life at this time which has been
called the age of challenges. The final decision to form the College was made
in in 2008. This clarified the vision of the College, defining its mission, aims,
tasks, administrative structure, programs, and departments.
The College began teaching master’s degree programs in the
academic year of 2009-2010 in the Department of Strategic Studies and the
Department of Human Security. It then began teaching postgraduate programs in
Regional and International Studies in 2013. The College taught its first
diploma program in the academic year of 2010-2011.
The College opened Doctoral programs in the academic year 2015/2016.
