Intelligence Community Center of Academic Excellence


The USF School of Information is a legacy IC Center of Academic Excellence, as designated by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Students may pursue a minor in Intelligence Studies, or a MS in Intelligence Studies with a concentration in either Strategic Intelligence or Cyber Intelligence. Our faculty and staff provide advising and support for students seeking internships with local and federal agencies and organizations, and we also offer a number of other learning opportunities for students to engage with the IC.
