New programs in spring include masters’ in engineering and intelligence and security studies

One of the nation’s leading security experts and a former FBI special agent is the director of the new intelligence and security studies program at The Citadel. Carl J. Jensen, III, Ph.D., carl-jensenwill lead the new master’s program which will be housed under the Department of Criminal Justice in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences.

Jensen, a 1978 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, served in the Navy for five years before graduating from FBI New Agent Training and serving as a field agent in Atlanta, Monterey, California and Youngstown, Ohio. Throughout his career with the FBI, Jensen served as a racketeering records examiner and reported to the Behavioral Science Unit in Quantico, Virginia, where he instructed senior police officials, conducted research and provided consultation for cases.

Upon his retirement in 2006, Jensen joined the RAND Corporation as a senior behavioral scientist and in 2007, he joined the University of Mississippi, where he served as an associate professor and director of the Center for Intelligence and Security Studies.

“Dr. Jensen has already made significant contributions to the intelligence and security studies program at The Citadel,” said Bo Moore, Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences. “His over 20 years of experience in the FBI and as founding director of the Intelligence Community Center of Academic Excellence at the University of Mississippi are proving invaluable to our students as they take the next step in furthering their career with an advanced degree.”
