The biggest demand at the federal level is in the Departments of State, Defense, Justice, and Homeland Security, as well as the traditional opportunities at the Central Intelligence and National Security Agencies.
Fairmont State’s National Security & Intelligence program is designed to provide students with the tools they need to pursue those career goals as research and/or intelligence analysts. The program is a concentration in the Social Sciences. It is also offered as a minor.
