The MAISS Program represents an integrated approach to the study of intelligence and security, with a focus on cybersecurity and modern intelligence methods alongside traditional notions of national and international security, including causes of war, terrorism, and counterterrorism strategies. With a selection of all graduate-level courses created specifically for this program, students will gain a specialized foundation on which to build and advance their careers. MAISS graduates are expected to find positions in the U.S. and foreign governments, in the defense industry and private sector, at research institutions and non-governmental organizations, and in doctoral programs and academic careers.
