International Security and Intelligence Studies Degree - Bachelor of Science
Developing future international security and intelligence professionals has never been more crucial. Bellevue University’s Bachelor of Science in International Security and Intelligence Studies (ISIS) was created to fulfill this need. As an ISIS student, you will gain theoretical and practical perspectives across issues like global interdependence, international political economy, military affairs, transnational threats, cyber-security, comparative intelligence cultures and social change and revolution. This exposure enables you to analyze complex global interrelationships; comprehend the evolution of the international threat environment; and synthesize conflict and peace theory with national security policy.
The ISIS program will take you beyond a political science or history degree. You’ll be engaging in a field of study that encompasses philosophy, psychology, science, cybersecurity, global affairs and military studies all at once. The program incorporates a full range of challenges that cover case studies, role-plays and scenario simulations. You’ll learn how to be a proficient and agile thinker on all of the issues, methods, and approaches that make up the numerous careers in intelligence and security.
ISIS is structured to help you develop the essential analytical processing and research skills you will need for a career within the Intelligence Community.
Upon graduation, you will be able to:
- Recognize the theories, principles, methodology, structure, organizations, categories, trends, classifications and conventions of national security and intelligence.
- Evaluate the global security environment, including various and diverse transnational threats and how they impact and interact with the international community and individual regions and states.
- Apply critical thinking and interpretive analytical problem solving skills to threat assessment and resolution.
- Evaluate the efficacy of various types of policy proposals.
You will have extensive career opportunities with this degree: governmental, corporate, philanthropic, and academic. The United States Intelligence Community is comprised of 17 agencies and the demand for analysts is likely to continue increasing. In addition to these 17 agencies, the United States has hundreds of major private corporations and organizations working on Intelligence Community priorities and mission objectives. This translates into many diverse and intriguingly varied career opportunities beyond the CIA, FBI, or NSA.
