Douglas Fergusson received his BA (Dbl. Hons. Political Science and Religion) from the University of Manitoba and his MA (Political Science) from the University of Carleton. Having spent his formative post-secondary education firmly entrenched in strategic studies and questions of military function, history, and policy he now shifts his focus to theoretical questions of War and its place in contemporary society for his Doctoral Studies. Working with Dr. Brian Schmidt, and with input from his studies with other professors at Carleton University, Douglas plans to use their immense knowledge to help guide the creation of a world class dissertation.
