Centers and Institutes

Intelligence Community Center of Academic Excellence


Thanks to a grant from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, USF SI now offers a certificate in national intelligence at the undergraduate level, through the Intelligence Center for Academic Excellence. This program is open to all students enrolled at USF, regardless of major. Students pursuing careers in any executive position, whether in business or government, have an opportunity to sharpen their analytical and critical-thinking skills and take advantage of overseas internships in order to prepare for careers in the private sector as well as in the national security agencies of the U.S. Government.
