The world has changed. In less than a quarter century, we have transitioned from the geopolitical certainties of the Cold War to an evolving collage of variables. The Certificate in Intelligence and Security Studies addresses the economics, politics, and culture of the former Soviet Union and Germany. It further refines the use of this knowledge by preparing graduate students for careers in intelligence, anti-terrorism, and homeland security.
The Certificate program is designed to enhance the geopolitical knowledge base of the Certificate candidates, to increase their ability to gather, analyze, and interpret intelligence and security-related information in the area of focus, and to enhance their career opportunities with intelligence and security-related agencies.
