University of Cambridge, The Intel/Security Program
This four-week summer program offers a unique opportunity to work with leading practitioners and academics from the security and intelligence communities in the delightful riverside setting of Magdalene College. The University, now one of the highest-ranked in the world, dates back to the early 13th century and the earliest college foundations are clustered at the heart of the medieval city.
The International Security and Intelligence Program (ISI) will consider the claims of state secrecy, the threat of nuclear proliferation, cyberattack, terrorism, the problems generated by the demand for regional security and the security challenges of revolutions and governing diversity. Intelligence collection, analysis of the product, and its dissemination to customers remain at the core of the intelligence cycle. Counterintelligence and covert action play more opaque but still vital roles at the heart of the nation-state. Understanding these perspectives, what intelligence can achieve, but also its limitations, are the major program and conference themes. AUC students must apply through the Office of International Programs and Services (IPSO) by completing the summer study abroad application before March 25, 2020.
