Dive into the growing field of intelligence analysis, where international relations, foreign policy, and national security intertwine with the Intelligence Analysis program of York College of Pennsylvania.


Intelligence analysts provide finished intelligence to policymakers for decisions of national importance. They pull together, study, and evaluate information gathered from a broad range of sources, from satellite surveillance to human contacts, to produce timely and objective assessments, free of any political bias. This information varies widely in terms of reliability, and is often conflicting or incomplete. Your job as an analyst is to develop meaningful and usable intelligence assessments from a variety of sources.

The Intelligence Analysis program of York College of Pennsylvania was recently developed after the intelligence community noted the lack of qualified graduates in the job market. It’s mutually beneficial. Our students benefit from the opportunity to potentially gain internship experience and from learning about the security clearance process. The Intelligence Community (IC) benefits from a conveniently located and well-trained cadre of students from a high quality and rigorous academic program. Our unique program has an emphasis on regional area studies including the geography, history, and politics of those regions, and global studies including the politics of international relations, foreign policy, and national security.
