The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Intelligence Analysis is designed specifically for students who seek a career as an intelligence analyst either in the U.S. government, military, or the private sector. In this program, students learn innovative ways to structure their thinking to solve complex real-world problems when there is both time pressure and a lack of reliable information. This program highlights the continually evolving nature of intelligence analysis, with an emphasis on employing new academic research into analytical methods.
