3 Credits (Minimum) 3 Credits (Maximum)

This course will provide students with a broad survey of intelligence analysis issues and research, beginning with an examination of the role intelligence analysis plays in support of policymakers and security operations. This will include the various types of intelligence analysis required and the different kinds of relations that characterize the analyst-policymaker dynamic. Students will learn about cognitive biases and analytic pathologies, as well as the role of critical thinking skills and social science methodology in intelligence analysis. The Structured Analytic Techniques (or SATs) devised and used by the U.S. Intelligence Community are also introduced. Key issues include the analytic reforms of the last decade (and the efficacy of those reforms), measuring analytic performance and techniques, emerging intelligence challenges such as climate change, intelligence politicization, and the management of intelligence analysts, analytic groups, and the analytic process. Prer., Graduate and graduate nondegree students only. Meets with PAD 5985.
