The content of the Doctoral Program "Defence and Homeland Security" is balanced in terms of professional training and scientific training.

The professional training courses are partly carried out in immersion on site, as close as possible to the specialists. An important part is proposed around personal development (stress management, teamwork, project management).

The scientific training courses are based on the exceptional potential of the Aix-Marseille University laboratories and the advanced expertise of the programme's partner institutions.

The Doctoral Programme "Defence and Homeland Security" is particularly aimed at:

  • Military staff aiming at pursuing a career in the forces
  • Masters students motivated by defence and internal security themes
