Sequence of Courses and Example Chart

Courses in the Intelligence Community & Law Enforcement Intelligence (ICL) sections and Analytic Skill Set Development (ANL) sections—your core courses—will be offered for every IACT session and will generally occur in the same sequence in which they are listed. For instance, students will receive the Intelligence Community & Law Enforcement Intelligence sections in this order: ICL 100, ICL 101, ICL 102, and ICL 103. Students will receive the Analytic Skill Set Development (ANL) sections in this order: ANL 100, ANL 101, ANL 102, ANL 103, and ANL 104. Courses in the Functional Specialty (FUNC) section—our elective sections taught by our adjunct instructors—will be interspersed between our core courses to add variety and can occur in any order (i.e., none of these courses are prerequisites for each other). The CAP 100, while listed as a separate course to allow for a course description and total clock hours allowed in class, will actually occur throughout the 10-week course since it is a building block assignment based on many of the core courses in the program. The final Capstone Portfolio will be due at the end of the program.
