U.S. Intelligence Studies Certificate

U.S. Intelligence Studies Certificate


We designed this certificate program for a broad spectrum of careerists who work in the areas of law enforcement, defense contracting and security, as well as for anyone seeking a better understanding of the U.S. national intelligence community and how it functions. The courses are a combination of lectures and seminar-style discussions, all of which illustrate the various agencies that comprise the intelligence community, management of intelligence assets, the history of U.S. intelligence, as well as discussions to address some of the most perplexing issues facing today’s intelligence officers. This exciting new program is taught by former members of the military reserve faculty of the National Intelligence University, all of whom have extensive experience in the defense and intelligence fields. Individual courses may be taken without pursuing the certificate program. Questions? Call 703-257-6631.
