This foundational course teaches students to convey analytic
assessments and findings in their intelligence reports and briefings.
Students will be asked to deconstruct intelligence reporting of
varying qualities and designed for different stakeholders to identify
author intent, methods and findings.
During these exercises, students will be exposed to various examples
of strategic, operational and technical intelligence products.
Intelligence writing and briefing principles, including bottom line up
front (BLUF), words of estimative probability (WEPs) and analytic
judgments will all be introduced, along with potential pitfalls.
The course will also review best practices tied to citations,
grammar, style and peer review. It concludes with an opportunity for
