New graduate program addresses security and intelligence challenges

Citadel offers graduate certificate in intelligence analysis

Classes for a new graduate certificate in intelligence analysis in The Citadel Graduate College are scheduled to begin in the fall. The new program will give students the skills they need to address security and intelligence challenges both at home and abroad.

Program Director David Hurley has a Ph.D. in criminal justice from the University of Cincinnati. A senior counterintelligence analyst in the U.S. Army Reserves, Hurley has been deployed to both Afghanistan and Iraq. He has also worked with the U.S. Central Command Center of Excellence for Afghanistan and Pakistan, National Air and Space Intelligence Center, and the U.S. European Command Regional Joint Intelligence Training Facility where he developed courses, analyzed the various tribal and ethnic components of the Afghan conflict, and tracked socio-cultural differences via geo-based intelligence tools.

“The intelligence analysis program is designed for working professionals and graduate students who want to further their understanding of intelligence analysis issues,” said Hurley. “They will learn the how leadership impacts national security and how to apply leadership strategies to complex intelligence issues.”

Information about the graduate certificate in intelligence analysis is available online. For additional information, contact the department of criminal justice at (843) 953-0319 or Hurley at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
