MonTREP benefits from the employment of professors and students in the Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies degree program. The unique courses taught in this program contribute to the research done at MonTREP; all MonTREP research faculty are also teaching professors. In addition, the language requirement at MIIS creates a large pool of research assistants who are able to proficiently work in languages other than English. MonTREP pulls all of its graduate research assistants from the Graduate School of International Policy & Management.
