Instead of establishing its own war college from scratch, the Space Force is partnering with a private university, as reported.

Starting next year, selected Space Force officers, civilians and other members of the military will take classes at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies in Washington, D.C. to study for a master’s degree in international public policy.

“Participants in this program will be integral members of our school, working closely with our distinguished faculty, students, and contributing to our intellectual community,” James B. Steinberg, dean of Johns Hopkins SAIS, said in a press release.

The courses will start next fall in the site of the former Newseum on Pennsylvania Ave. in D.C.
