New graduate program available for intelligence officers

The Department of Defense on Oct. 16 announced a new graduate program for  intelligence officers that will focus on studying technology-related emerging threats.

The one-year, full-time program, offered through National Intelligence University, provides students hands-on experience in “developing advanced analytical techniques for intelligence analysis, systems theory and science and technology threat architectures,” according to a press release.

“With our adversaries’ increased emphasis on technology, it is imperative that institutions like ours better equip intelligence professionals to deal with these ever-evolving challenges," said Brian Shaw, dean of NIU’s Anthony G. Oettinger School of Science and Technology Intelligence.

In addition to meeting academic requirements, students must be military service members or federal government employees with top-secret clearances, and be nominated by their organization  to enroll into the program. Those who complete the program will receive a master of science and technology intelligence degree.
