Course Description

The Division of Public Safety Leadership of the Johns Hopkins University School of Education offers the Master of Science in Intelligence Analysis to enhance the nation's capabilities in the analysis of strategic and tactical information collected from open and closed sources. The Master of Science in Intelligence Analysis is an intense course of study for current intelligence analysts who are or aspire to be among the leaders of the Intelligence Community (IC).

Dynamic, robust leadership is as important as analytical expertise in meeting the goal of efficiently producing intelligence of value. Leaders within the intelligence community must foster and sustain a collaborative, ethical foundation on which to build intelligence products. These products must be based on collectively embraced standards of objectivity, quality, timeliness, and relevance.

The JHU Master of Science in Intelligence Analysis enhances the tradecraft and the analytical skills of professionals in the field. Through this program, students build creativity, apply imagination, mentor less experienced analysts, and learn to improve communication between intelligence analysts and policy makers.
