Arctic Security Fundamentals (edX)
This course explores the present-day security situation of the Arctic through a focus on the key stakeholders responsible for diplomacy and defense. The Arctic: a region of frigid waters, tundra, and prolonged periods of light and darkness. While it may seem desolate, the Circumpolar North holds a wealth of resources and opportunities for nations and the Indigenous peoples who live there.

Many challenges also exist, including shipping management, oil and gas production, mining activities, fisheries management, protection of threatened species, and significant defense-related difficulties, to name a few. This course will provide a baseline understanding of security circumstances and management, as well as the variety of actors involved.




Arctic Security Fundamentals also explores the security situation of the Arctic through a focus on the key stakeholders responsible for diplomacy and defense. Although the post-Cold War Circumpolar North has remained mostly stable, rapid changes in climate and technology have created new conditions requiring increased attention and management.
