  • PAD5849 U.S. Intelligence Policy (3)
    The Intelligence Policy course is an introduction to the United States Intelligence Community (IC), its significant role within the U.S. government and how intelligence informs and shapes U.S. policy. This class is designed to prepare students interested in national security for additional education in intelligence studies, homeland security, and international affairs. Through lecture, assigned readings, classroom discussion, and guest speakers, we will address the IC and its preeminent role and effect on U.S. policy both domestically and internationally. We will explore the intersections of the IC with Congress, the DNI, the Executive branch, national security law, finance and intelligence sharing.

    This course explores the variety of intelligence analysis tools and techniques common to U.S. federal, state, and local agencies, using simulations and activities to understand how raw information is transformed and presented as intelligence. Emphasis will be placed on OSINT analysis, but other-source intelligence will be included based upon industry needs. Additionally, plain language writing and intelligence presentations will be included in learning materials.
