Welcome to TISS-IC-CAE in Intelligence and Security Studies web site. We are a consortium of UNC-Chapel Hill, Duke University, North Carolina State University, and North Carolina Central University.  Our primary goal is to promote understanding of the intelligence mission through the development of courses and associated programs.

Undergraduates and graduate students who are interested in learning more about this field should pursue programs available at their own university. As of Fall 2016 UNC-Chapel Hill will offer a concentration in intelligence and security within the curriculum in Peace, War, and Defense; other members of our consortium are developing a variety of new courses on intelligence/and or security studies.

Students interested in the study of intelligence and security should consider joining the TISS IC-CAE Association for the Study of Intelligence list serve to remain apprised of upcoming events or other opportunities. Students who wish to further set themselves apart may pursue the IC-CAE “Student Scholar” distinction by working with their campus IC-CAE representative to fulfill certain key academic and programmatic criteria.

Most of our events are free and open to the public. They will be announced on this website, the TISS website, and through our list serv.
