Intel, Intl Sec, CT & Hmlnd Sec Int

This course provides an introduction to the study of intelligence and international security by training students in intelligence analysis to enable them to write briefing and analytic products that are used in the analysis of international security, counterterrorism, and homeland security studies. Such an integrated analytic approach is required because of the integrated nature of international security, counterterrorism, and homeland security. The analytic methodologies taught will draw on the concepts of risk-based security management approaches. Students will also explore the national strategies and programs developed by the United States and its allies to deal with on-going threats at the international, national, and local levels, including how to balance the need for security and maintenance of civil liberties. Students will apply the course’s analytic intelligence methodologies to examine selected case studies. (3)
