Dear aspirant

Thank you for approaching counsellors at CareerGuide.com. I appreciate your interest in defence studies. India definitely offers defence studies at both bachelors level and masters level. I will brief you on the colleges, course and career attached to it.

Colleges:
  • Institute of defence studies and analyses New Delhi
  • Panjab university
  • University of Allahabad
  • University of Pune
  • Punjabi university
  • Thiruvalluvar university
  • The Indian national defence university
All the above universities and institutes offer defence studies from bachelors to masters and phd level too.

Course: As a Bachelors in Defence and security studies you will study the following internal courses. Meaning and concept of national security, Indias foreign policies - meanings and objectives, principles and determinants, India's defence policies - military and defence capability, Indias nuclear policy - peaceful uses, 1974 PNE, 1998 test, nuclear doctrine, problems in India's nuclear security - meaning, terrorism, insurgency, Indo-pak relations - kashmir issue, nuclear debate, Indo china dispute - border issues, post 1962 developments, India and SAARC - aims, objectives and achievements, India's indian ocean policy - strategic importance, presence of super powers, India's naval strategy and policy, India and Russia, Post cold war period, India and USA relations upto nuclear agreement.

Along with this if you complete the degree and then if you appear for the UPSC exam that government conducts annually, you are sure to get placed in defence and security jobs.

Some students also choose to study a masters degree in Security and defence studies like the MA Defence studies. After completing this MA, you can also choose to work in education sector like becoming a lecturer at college.
