Graduates of military and strategic studies programs are well-placed to pursue further study in topics such as history, political science, curatorial and museum studies, globalization studies, law, or peace and conflict resolution studies. They may consider careers in research, writing, historical interpretation, the human services fields,
policy making, as advisors to government and NGOs in matters of international conflict, or in the military itself.
RMC graduates are unique in Canada in that they graduate not only with an university degree but also with a commission as an officer in the Canadian Armed Forces. The intensive leadership instruction, physical education, and training in both official languages yield another skill set for these graduates. Not surprisingly, many go on to careers in either the armed forces or as civilian workers in government departments such as National Defense.
