Master of Arts with a major in Intelligence and Security Studies
The Master of Arts in Intelligence and Security Studies (MAISS) prepares students and industry leaders to address the intelligence and security challenges in an interconnected world.
The coursework is focused on inter and intrastate conflict, terrorism and counter-terrorism, and national, regional, and global strategic security and cybersecurity threats. The program prepares students for careers in the areas of strategic security policy, intelligence analysis, and for advancement in military, law enforcement, and academia.
The program seeks to expose military members, future decision makers and analysts, and students considering a PhD to the security challenges inherent in a rapidly changing world. Our program has a special emphasis on the causes and effects of interstate and intrastate conflict, the sources of terrorism, terrorism and counterterrorism strategies, and security issues that affect national, regional, and global security.
It is the responsibility of the student to maintain contact with the Program Coordinator to insure the proper selection and sequence of courses and completion of the Thesis/Capstone for the MAISS program.
