Henley-Putnam degree and certificate programs in strategic security help prepare you for a career in the Intelligence Community (IC), with contractors supporting the IC, and/or with other government agencies, such as the Department of Homeland Security, that are actively involved in Strategic Security. Our programs were developed by faculty members with specific experiences in these government agencies to enable students to be well-prepared for government jobs, whether the student has previous experience or is completely new to the field. Henley-Putnam students focused within the government sector can select from a wide variety of security-specific coursework, from counterintelligence training and WMD terrorism, to counter terrorism training and studies in intelligence.
Given the present threat environment, government agencies have a constant need for individuals with a background in strategic security, from counter terrorism training specialists, to intelligence analysts and operatives, to threat assessors and protection specialists. Government agencies such as the CIA, FBI, NSA, DIA, and the Department of Homeland Security, among other organizations, hire candidates with academic and/or field experience in counter terrorism, intelligence or counter intelligence, and protection.
Whether your educational goals include additional intelligence training, counterterrorism training, or analytical skills development, our programs can assist you along your educational and career path.
