Description of Program
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 graduate department of Central and Eastern European Studies offers a program of study in the economics, politics, and culture of the former Soviet Union and Germany. The Certificate in Intelligence and Security Studies 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.
