Have you ever wondered. . .
How did the U.S. government find Osama Bin Laden? How does it protect you from acts of terrorism? How has it conducted the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan?
If you want to know the answers to these questions, the program in Intelligence and National Security Studies may be for you.
The field of intelligence analysis has taken on an increasingly important role in a variety of areas of foreign and domestic security policy. The advent of globalization and the information revolution have made those who can research, analyze, and evaluate information even more important to society. As a result, the program is designed to enable students to develop an understanding of the intelligence process, its effect on policy-making, and the legal and ethical considerations that are involved in the endeavor.
With its focus on analyzing information, developing effective communication skills, and understanding other cultures, the intelligence and national security studies program is a valuable complement to your educational experience.
