The analyst employs critical thinking and structured analytic techniques to determine the probability of the development or likelihood that a particular event will occur.
The analysis may address day-to-day events referred to as “current intelligence.” Other types of analysis may include trend analysis, long term assessments, warning intelligence, and scientific and technical intelligence. Although a broad range of specialized skill-sets is required in the IC, the basic skill that undergirds all the specialties is critical thinking.

The functions of the AG include ensuring that course content of established courses and the development of future courses in the concentration are aligned with the current and future needs of the Intelligence Community to enhance student employability upon graduation.
The AG is also active in identifying internship opportunities for students, as well as being a direct source of mentorship for students seeking careers in the Intelligence Community. In addition, the AG and their network of contacts will provide students with the chance to establish and build relationships with intelligence professionals who would be well-positioned to direct them to employment opportunities that match the skill sets developed in the Intelligence Studies Concentration.
