Meeting U.S. Government Demand.

This Master's program is designed to help meet U.S. government demand for more specialists in the area of intelligence analysis to assist in the tasks of homeland security in the face of threats from global terrorism.

Border City Location.

As a major border city, one which has the highest volume of commercial traffic with a foreign country of any U.S. city, the Detroit-Windsor area is uniquely located to provide corporate, local law enforcement, and national government opportunities, issues, and situations relevant to intelligence analysis.

Forecasting Risk.

The field of intelligence analysis uses "open intelligence" information to provide forecasts of risks and benefits to guide governmental, law enforcement, and private industry decision making.

These forecasts involve use of available data and news sources to analyze crime patterns, security threats, possible terrorist targets, and other relevant societal trends.
