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 within the scope of economics, politics, cybersecurity, and social aspects for the private and public sectors, as well as the military, to perform their duties. 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). With the university’s unique curriculum in counterterrorism, cyber security, computer science, critical infrastructure, and others, this program will enable the graduating students to apply theoretical, conceptual, and practical real-world skills in intelligence and security studies.

The BS in Intelligence and Global Security degree is intended for undergraduate students who desire to enter similar fields in their professional careers. It provides a path for Intelligence and Global Security personnel to explore new ground in the critical field of Intelligence and Global Security. Graduates will contribute significantly to the field through the creation of new knowledge and ideas that are required to address the current and newly emerging threats in global security.
