In the track Intelligence and National Security of the MSc Crisis and Security Management you will be introduced to intelligence and security services in their political, societal, and bureaucratic contexts. The track will give you a thorough understanding of the modus operandi of these agencies, their interaction with the surrounding world, and the challenges they face.

By studying the history, theory and practice of intelligence in the 21st Century, you will navigate the evolution of intelligence work to meet new security challenges, and you will learn the methods, techniques and forms of critical thinking that equip future intelligence analysts with the ability to weigh hypotheses, detect patterns, and derive logical conclusions about the world. You will also explore intelligence in its wider societal and political context, how they cooperate with other agencies and institutions and analyze and evaluate how intelligence services should be governed and held to account in democratic societies.
