Understanding Espionage and Intelligence

Intelligence is perhaps the least understood function of the U.S. government. This course examines the role of the espionage and intelligence in U.S. national security and foreign policy. Over the course of twelve 1.5-hour sessions, "Understanding Espionage and Intelligence" will illuminate the history of intelligence operations and the formation of the U.S. intelligence community; how in intelligence is collected, analyzed, and provided to U.S. policymakers and how effective oversight reconciles intelligence with the rule of law in a democratic society. Additional sessions will focus on challenges in counterintelligence, the discipline of protecting U.S. national security from hostile foreign intelligence activities; and the intelligence operations of America's strategic rivals and adversaries.
