Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate Degree Programs

The international and national security threats of today’s world are multidimensional in nature. They require professionals with a broad range of expertise in managing and producing solutions that are multidisciplinary substantively and methodologically. The Intelligence and Global Security degree will provide students a comprehensive and multidisciplinary understanding of the confluence of threats posed by terrorist groups, lone actors, para-military guerrilla groups, rogue states’ regular armies, cyber criminals (including state actors and terrorists), climate change, governance breakdowns, and public health threats, such as the naturally occurring biological-based infectious diseases (e.g., COVID-19 pandemic), severe economic crises, mass refugee migrations, and even malicious disinformation. With the university’s unique curriculum in counterterrorism, cyber security, computer science, critical infrastructure protection, and others, this program will enable the graduating students to apply theoretical, conceptual, and practical real-world skills in intelligence and security studies.
