HSEC 462 - Intelligence Analysis: Research, Methods and Writing


(3)

This course will examine Intelligence Analysis methodology and products as employed in a variety of settings and for a number of customer-types. An overview of the Intelligence Process and of Collection Strategies will also be conducted. The primary emphasis will be on conducting actual analysis of raw information to produce an Intelligence Estimate as a capstone to the course. Throughout the class, reading and interpreting analytically will be the focus, in order for each student to be able to function independently in synthesizing raw data within given parameters to create a coherent predictive estimate. This course is intended for both potential producers and consumers of intelligence. Prerequisite(s): HSEC 360 or instructor permission.
