Master of Military Art and Science (MMAS) Degree
Earn an accredited master’s degree in your professional field of interest. For detailed information, read the MMAS Program Information.
The U.S. Army Command and General Staff College (CGSC) grants the MMAS degree based upon the candidate’s successful completion of the Command and General Staff School Intermediate Level Education course, an oral comprehensive exam, and a 50- to 125-page thesis based on original research.
The MMAS degree program offers you the opportunity to develop your research and writing skills through advanced study of the profession of arms. Every completed thesis is published electronically by the Combined Arms Research Library, and several thousands of readers, some of them senior military leaders, refer to the archive every year. The potential for recognition of your work by peers and superior officers is high.
- MMAS work is seamlessly integrated into the Command and General Staff Officer Course (CGSOC) and can be used in partial fulfillment (4 of 8) of your elective requirement for graduation.
- Because the MMAS is a CGSC program, there is no tuition.
- All classes fit within the CGSOC class schedule on weekday afternoons.
- You can write the thesis on a topic that you believe is professionally important and of general military interest.
The candidate must:
- Have earned an accredited bachelor’s degree or the equivalent.
- Submit an application for admission to the program, have official transcripts sent from the institution that granted the bachelor’s degree, and be accepted into the program by the Director, Graduate Degree Programs (GDP).
- Complete CGSOC and assigned electives with grades of “B” or better.
- Successfully complete A211 Basic Research Methods, A221 Thesis Seminar, and A231 Thesis. These count as 4 of the 8 electives required in the CGSOC program.
- Successfully complete the oral comprehensive exam.
- Complete and successfully defend a 50- to 125-page thesis.
For more information, view the MMAS Program Information document, visit the GDP offices in Room 4500 in the Lewis and Clark Center, or call 913-684-2741.
