Course outline

This degree aims to deliver an understanding of the contemporary security and intelligence environment in western democracies, focusing particularly on the law enforcement environment in the UK.

As well as the MA, studied over 12 months, these programmes are available:

• Postgraduate Diploma in Law Enforcement, Security and Intelligence (9 months, starting in September)
• Postgraduate Certificate in Law Enforcement, Security and Intelligence (6 months, starting in September)

There is a national and international need for graduates to acquire the skills to analyse security and intelligence matters. Emphasis is placed on relating academic and historical analyses to contemporary problems and policy questions especially in the UK but also to western states in general. This course uniquely uses a degree of “practice” expertise within those delivering the programme.
This MA is aimed at both those seeking professional skills and those requiring a more general grounding in this subject. Graduates will be able to demonstrate deep knowledge and understanding of security and intelligence issues. For the Law Enforcement intelligence community in particular, this programme offers one component of “professionalisation” within the growing and increasingly significant career pathway of intelligence within the overall arena of policing in the contemporary UK.
The five modules and dissertation on an agreed topic fit together to deliver a strong contemporary security and intelligence focus for students by:

• providing a robust theoretical model, or argued thesis in which a student’s research, reading and writing may be placed;
• outlining and examining the key priority geopolitical threats facing the UK;
• exploring the context in which security and intelligence agencies and the law enforcement intelligence sector are required to operate.

Drawing on the extensive practitioner experience of some of the fellows of the University of Buckingham Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies (BUCSIS), it examines carefully and in detail the security and intelligence tradecraft and machinery which interface with these threats, paying due attention to a number of plans for reform both in the UK and beyond.

About BUCSIS

BUCSIS was established in 2008 as a world-class centre for research into the key Security and Intelligence issues facing the UK and the world in the 21st century. The Centre is headed by a leading academic in the field, Professor Anthony Glees, and is supported by a research and teaching team led by Dr Julian Richards, a Security Studies specialist with a long experience of working in the UK government on defence and security policy issues.

Course Outline

This programme aims to deliver a deep understanding of the contemporary security and intelligence environment in western democracies, with a focus on the UK. Security and Intelligence Studies are an important new field in political science but there is also widespread recognition that a good knowledge of how security and intelligence agencies operate; of the environment in which they operate; and of how their products are, and should be, used has become a key component of good and successful governance. Emphasis is placed on relating academic and historical analyses to contemporary problems and policy questions especially in the UK but also to western states in general, using a unique degree of practitioner-led expertise.

With regard to intelligence-led policy and practice, emphasis is placed on the very skills that the intelligence community itself has been urged to develop in the wake of the Butler Review on Intelligence on WMD. This specifically recommended the development of a greater degree of ‘professionalisation’ in intelligence analysis skills, including critical thinking and analysis (developed in part through an element of exercising and collaborative working on challenge problems), and a greater ability to evaluate and assess disparate sources of sometimes conflicting information. This programme is aimed at everyone who is interested in intelligence and security issues, whatever their career plans, but also at those who may be aspiring to work in the field of security and intelligence. It can also assist the career development of those already employed within that field.

Entry points

Entry to the course is available in January, April and September.

Teaching methods

Teaching is carried out through a combination of lectures supported by seminars and tutorials. A key feature of the Buckingham teaching method is the use of small tutorial groups which provide the most effective means of ensuring that the students benefit from the academic expertise at their disposal. It is also the philosophy of Buckingham’s faculty to be available to students outside the scheduled tutorial times and to encourage good working relationships between staff and students.

About the course

Intelligence and security policy issues are now one of the fastest growing areas of academic and public concern, especially since '9/11' and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Today more than ever before national governments, international agencies and most major international corporations have an identified need for staff with a strong grasp of intelligence and security issues who can also demonstrate first-rate skills of research and assessment.

Taught by the internationally respected scholars of the Brunel Centre for Intelligence and Security Studies, backed up where required by practitioner expertise, the MA in Intelligence and Security Studies (MA ISS) now available by Distance Learning) offers a unique opportunity for practical, policy-oriented graduate study of intelligence issues applicable across the private and public sectors around the world.

Aims

This course will be of value to individuals seeking to go into security-oriented careers in both the private sectors, as well as to individuals engaged in the security professions who seek further qualifications and professional enhancement.

A distinctive feature of the course lies in its combining the rigorous study of intelligence and security policy studies with practical opportunities to develop intelligence skills through case studies and simulation exercises dealing with intelligence analysis.

Course Content

The MA consists of both compulsory and optional modules, a typical selection can be found below. Modules can vary from year to year, but these offer a good idea of what we teach.

All modules are taught on the basis of lectures, seminars and directed reading. Additionally, the second term Case Studies course is a student-led seminar programme in which participants present detailed case studies and are peer reviewed on their presentation skills.

The second term Analytical Simulation Exercise will involve students working in groups in a simulated joint, all-source intelligence assessment modelled on the actual joint assessment processes in the US and UK governments. Students are assessed on a mixture of individual and group work.

Special Features

BCISS
The Brunel Centre for Intelligence and Security Studies is Britain's first academic centre dedicated to intelligence scholarship and policy-analysis. It includes one of Britain's most innovative scholars in the field, Dr Philip H J Davies, as well Dr Kristian Gustafson (director of the MA programme), an expert on covert action and military intelligence doctrine. The newest member of staff is Mohamed Gaballa. An alumni of the MA, he is a specialist in Structured Analytic Techniques, with a focus on Analysis of Competing Hypothesis. The former senior military imagery analyst, Geoff Oxlee, OBE, joined BCISS as an Honorary Fellow and completes the core team. Together, these scholars not only produce important original research, published worldwide, but actively contribute to the success of government and business in the UK.

The Centre, though, is an inter-disciplinary endeavour, and includes participation from some of the leading Brunel University London academics in the fields of cryptography, computer networking, imagery, economics and even law. Many of these experts already assist our teaching. As well, the centre benefits from the assistance, from time to time, of various officials of Her Majesty’s Government. MA ISS, therefore, benefits from practitioner input and insight as well as instruction by leading international academics.

Thematic Video Lectures (TVLs):
The thematic video lectures and reading materials will provide grounding in the theoretical, methodological and practical issues upon which good research in intelligence and security studies is conducted. It will focus on providing conceptual mapping to the subject. The Lecturer video interaction with students will be supported by well-structured lecture slides. This is to be followed by problem based learning where students engage in practical exercises, case studies, and simulations.

Residential Block Week (RBWs):
Students join Brunel campus for one week in each year, dedicated to supporting the teaching and assessment. Each module assessment has one element – at least – to be conducted while students are on campus. The week consists of Workshops – involving Presentations and Exercises – that will be used as opportunities to test ‘test-fly’ students’ arguments that they wish to make in their final essay in a setting of open discussion and challenge by their peers as well as academic staff.

RBW (1) covers the two modules of the first year and introducing students to the research methods and support available at Brunel for their practical dissertation. RBW (2) hosts the Syndicate Meetings of Brunel Analytical Simulation Exercise (BASE), where students’ teams engage in discussions and produce their joint assessments.

Attendance of the two RBWs is compulsory. Each student will be hosted in on campus accommodation.

Brunel Analytical Simulation Exercise (BASE):
BASE, the jewel in the MA ISS crown, provides a hands-on, practical experience in the skills and techniques of simulations in intelligence collection and analysis. It provides students with a conceptual understanding of the strengths and pitfalls of collective intelligence analysis, assessment, and decision-making; and gives students first hand insight into the management problems of generating an agreed, collective or joint assessment.

Flexible and Interactive Features
-Online office hours with lecturers,
-Timely feedback on students’ regular short assignments.
-Individual and team assignments.
-Use of multimedia materials and software resources in teaching and assessments.

About the course

We are pleased to offer our PG Cert which has some of the same features as the MA, via distance learning, starting in September 2017. 

Intelligence and security policy issues are now one of the fastest growing areas of academic and public concern, especially since '9/11' and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Today more than ever before national governments, international agencies and most major international corporations have an identified need for staff with a strong grasp of intelligence and security issues who can also demonstrate first-rate skills of research and assessment.

Taught by the internationally respected scholars of the Brunel Centre for Intelligence and Security Studies, backed up where required by practitioner expertise, the PG Cert in Intelligence Analysis (by Distance Learning) offers a unique opportunity for practical, policy-oriented graduate study of intelligence issues applicable across the private and public sectors around the world.

Aims

To provide you with a systematic understanding of the role of intelligence policy and intelligence operations in national strategy and decision-making.

To provide you with a systematic and critical understanding of the role national intelligence institutions and their products have in the context of contemporary international history and politics.

To provide you with a systematic and critical understanding to the effectiveness of different methods of intelligence analysis to domains and applications of intelligence and introduce students to the core concepts of the cognitive process involved in intelligence analysis and associated cognitive errors and biases.

To provide general training in policy-oriented research and analytical skills.

Course Content

The PGcert consists of two compulsory modules. Modules can vary from year to year, but these offer a good idea of what we teach.

Intelligence Analysis Foundations, Methods and Applications:
This module examines the core concepts of the cognitive process involved in intelligence analysis and associated cognitive errors and biases, and promotes critical understanding to the effectiveness of different methods of intelligence analysis to domains and applications of intelligence. You will gain hands on experience in applying structured analytic techniques, quantitative methods, and traditional analysis methods. The module also draws lessons from other disciplines and examines the analytical implications of organisational aspects in intelligence. Throughout the module, you will undertake the Validation of Intelligence Scenarios and Analysis (VISA).
VISA is a scenario based intelligence analysis exercise covering open source intelligence collection plan, source evaluation and analytical techniques evaluation on contemporary case where denial and deception is potentially involved.

Contemporary Threats and Analytical Methodology:
This module hosts the Brunel Analytical Simulation Exercise (BASE).
BASE provides you with an opportunity to undertake a simulated intelligence analysis on a real-world subject. It is designed to emulate the interdepartmental assessment methods of the British Joint Intelligence Committee, and gives you a chance to apply hands-on analytical principles and methods learned abstractly in the other Intelligence Analysis taught courses.

Teaching

Thematic Video Lectures (TVLs) 
The thematic video lectures and reading materials will provide grounding in the theoretical, methodological and practical issues upon which good research in intelligence and security studies is conducted. It will focus on providing conceptual mapping to the subject. The Lecturer video interaction with students will be supported by well-structured lecture slides. This is to be followed by problem based learning where students engage in practical exercises, case studies, and simulations.

Multidisciplinary Teaching
The programme design enables students to examine intelligence analysis in multidisciplinary approach. Security Studies, Military History, Organisational Theories, Law, Cognitive Psychology and Probability together contribute to thorough and comprehensive approach to studying Intelligence.

Research at Brunel

The Isambard Centre for Historical Research
The Isambard Centre for Historical Research brings together scholars at Brunel whose work examines the tensions inherent in the transnational connections that have shaped the modern world. The Centre takes its title from the University’s namesake, Isambard Kingdom Brunel. During the nineteenth century, the dockyards, steamships and railways that he built, revolutionised transportation and communication, helping to create the infrastructure that underpinned increasing global trade. People, products, ideas and cultural artefacts were all transmitted along these routes, producing transnational exchanges that stretched across traditional political, cultural and geographic divides. But such processes helped to make borders as well as transcend them. They stimulated anxieties that led to new efforts to control, define and regulate ownership, identity and exchange. Attending to these dual impulses is crucial if we are to understand the social, cultural and political landscapes of the modern world.

Brunel Centre for Intelligence and Security Studies
Brunel's Centre for Intelligence and Security Studies (BCISS) is a University Inter-Disciplinary Research Centre, taking in members from the School of Engineering and Design, School of Law, and from the Department of Economics and Finance from the School of Social Sciences, as well as core members from the Department of Politics and History. BCISS is the first academic Centre established in the UK to deal specifically with intelligence issues, policy and institutions. Established in November 2003 the Centre aims to promote and develop social science and policy-oriented approaches to intelligence.

In a globalised world, the threat from terrorism is either immediate or a constant part of our lives. This distance learning course in counter-terrorism studies explores the strategies and controversies of those agencies tasked with fighting this threat. It also equips you to analyse these types of problems and helps you to grasp the important inter-disciplinary links with security studies. These skills will open up a wide range of career opportunities and enable you to engage with institutions and individuals central to this area.

More about this course

This postgraduate degree will explore all aspects of counter-terrorism including responses from the community, the security services and the military, situating them within a contemporary legal and ethical framework.

National governments, international agencies and major corporations recognise the need for personnel with a strong grasp of intelligence and security issues who can also demonstrate exceptional skills in research and analysis. We'll teach you to analyse these types of issues and to place them in the context of broader military, strategic and political considerations.

This distance learning course is taught in partnership with Informa via their online learning platform. It will assess important terrorism events and issues of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, analyse justifications for the increasing securitisation of social life and connect the conceptual basis of the discipline to some of the practical issues facing the international community.

Course modules provide opportunities for a review of emerging terrorism threats and the issues pertaining to counter-terrorism, law enforcement, government agencies and the private sector. You'll develop your own area of expertise within the fields of terrorism and counter-terrorism studies and gain an understanding of how the concept of counter-terrorism and security has been rearticulated and challenged in our contemporary context by engaging with some of the most pressing issues of our day.

In particular, you'll focus on understanding and applying intelligence and analytical thinking to practical problems by looking at current and emerging terrorism issues and potential solutions. You'll discover how policing, law enforcement and politicians are trying to counter and combat threats in a global environment.
