The Intelligence & Security Studies minor program trains students in intelligence collection and analysis with a focus on national security. Courses in political science and psychology provide the context in which students come to understand intelligence analysis, espionage, terrorism, and how to combat threats to national security.

Students develop an understanding of contemporary intelligence issues from a broad range of psychological, political, technological, ethical and historical perspectives. By reviewing intelligence successes and failures, students gain insight into methods of threat identification and elimination.
