Our intelligence analysis major can help you learn all you need to know to land a job in this growing sector.

Start by gaining a strong understanding of criminology and criminal justice, then deepen your knowledge of intelligence analysis in specialized areas. Choose from concentrations in counterintelligence, criminal intelligence, intelligence collection, or intelligence operations — and you’ll be prepared for a career in the government, military, criminal justice system, business, or the private sector.

You’ll learn everything you need in mind-expanding courses taught by award-winning faculty. And that’s just the start. Gain real-world experience with an internship, network with professionals at departmental conferences, access an on-campus forensic laboratory, join the criminal justice professional fraternity, and maybe even land your first job at the annual criminology career fair.
