This minor introduces students to the fundamentals of intelligence and national security, and it allows for students to specialize in one or more different areas that are appropriate for a career in these fields. This minor will be helpful for students majoring in any field who are interested in careers in intelligence and national security, and particularly for students in Political Science, International and Global Studies, and Criminal Justice. The minor in Intelligence and National Security consists of 18 credit hours at the undergraduate level, including four required core courses and two electives.
