About

With persistent global security threats and instability, there is an increasingly high demand for security and intelligence specialists in the United States and throughout the world. If you want to be a specialist in this area, Global Security and Intelligence Studies graduates from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is the right place for you.

Overview

Global Security and Intelligence Studies graduates from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University are candidates for intelligence and security agencies (ATF, CIA, DHS, DIA, FBI, NGIA, all branches of the military, etc.), and for corporations (large and small) who must protected their personnel, assets and information at home and abroad. The Bachelor of Science in Global Security & Intelligence Studies program at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University provides a rich learning environment that helps students develop critical thinking, analytic, research and problem-solving skills complemented with the scholarly breadth of a liberal arts foundation and foreign language proficiency.

ERAU students learn from experienced faculty members who have extensive professional, academic, and global experience in the field. Through hands-on, real-world simulations and practical knowledge, students become acquainted with international affairs and become sensitive to unforeseen threats to national security and global stability.  They are therefore able to employ intelligence analysis and to apply security insights in order to tailor appropriate political and logistical responses.  Global Security and Intelligence Studies students also conduct emergency management exercises relating to homeland security events and can participate as players in a capstone course that simulates an international or war crisis.

You will have opportunity to contribute to a student-produced intelligence newsletter, The Eagle Eye, which provides sound, real-time analysis of global affairs, particularly within the framework of foreseeing possible threats to regional or global stability. The Eagle Eye is distributed to agencies in the U.S. intelligence community as well as among political risk firms and competitive intelligence specialists in the private sector.  The Eagle Eye Club also organizes debates during the academic year.

ERAU students are also encouraged to become involved with professional organizations including the Association of Former Intelligence Officers, American Association of Airport Executives, American Society of Industrial Security, and other related organizations.  These organizations provide speakers on campus and enable students to network with professionals in their areas of interest.
