INT 300 Fundamentals of Intelligence

This course provides an overview of intelligence and the intelligence cycle. Students taking this class will be able to list and describe the role of three of the four principal elements of intelligence: collection (HUMINT and SIGINT), analysis, and counterintelligence. (The fourth principle element, covert operations, is covered in much detail in INT 390). The course also lays a groundwork for understanding overt and covert intelligence requirements and reporting, intelligence-specific vocabulary, and the breadth and complexity of the U.S. Intelligence Community today.
