In today's uncertain world, it can been argued that intelligence has never been more important than it is now. Good intelligence can alleviate security concerns and can even save lives. Specialists in intelligence studies are, therefore, in demand by the Australian Government and private sector market, including in corporate intelligence. This course will equip you with a practical skill set, enabling you to analyse real-world intelligence challenges. You'll also develop a deep understanding of the evolution of Australia's intelligence community, as well as the emerging domestic, regional and international challenges that surround intelligence. KEY FEATURES You'll have access to experts from around the world, each with practical experience in the intelligence sector, and each highly respected in their fields and sought after by media. Our Department of Security Studies and Criminology has established strong ties with government and non-government partners in the field of intelligence, ensuring this course is not only theoretically grounded but also highly practical. Simulated learning which reproduces the multidisciplinary expert panels that are employed by government and industry in response to intelligence and security issues will enable you to develop your technical skills. Electives allow you to focus on other aspects of security, including counter terrorism, security and strategic studies, cyber security and criminology.
