The Master program

msc students webThe ISU Master in Space Studies Program (MSS) is intended for individuals seeking professional development, further academic study, or both, through a one- or two-year graduate degree program. For experienced professionals, the MSS supports career advancement, a shift of career within the space sector or a career move into the space sector. For students who wish to make their careers in space, the MSS supports entry into the sector through access to space agencies, space commerce, space research and related actors.

The MSS aims are to:

  • Deliver high-quality 3Is education in the space domain and associated areas which both enhances students’ knowledge, skills and effectiveness and offers them the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
  • Maintain, promote and build productive links with the global space community, including ISU alumni, and use these to provide a contemporary ‘real-world’ dimension to the program.
  • Produce graduates capable of contributing effectively and holding responsible positions within the global space sector.

The MSS is structured as a one- or two-year program. The first year is essentially a taught one and is delivered primarily at the ISU Central Campus in Strasbourg. Some students will take only this year and graduate with an Master in Space Studies. During the first year, students who perform at an appropriate level may apply for the second ‘thesis year’ in which they perform a single extended piece of research or scholarly activity, either at ISU, or an appropriate host institution. These students will graduate with an Master in Space Studies and Thesis.
