A focus on the practice and community surrounding the intelligence field in the U.S. has placed new importance on training analysts and decision makers. The U.S. Intelligence Studies graduate certificate gives students in just about any program of study a way to stand out from the crowd. You'll learn real-world approaches to solving complicated problems and encounter concepts and methods that are as relevant in business, psychology, and the arts as they are to national security. Included in the program are courses on analysis methods, critical thinking, plain-language writing, policy development, national security, terrorism and conflict, and ethics.
Before you can be issued a certificate, you'll need to apply for admission to the certificate program. Your application should be submitted as early as possible and before you've completed six credits.
