This plan of study is for a specific concentration within the Master of Arts in Intelligence and Security Studies. It is meant to teach the student how social influence and persuasion works, specifically focusing on different aspects of information warfare and data collection. The concentration teaches how strategic adversaries have targeted propaganda campaigns against the United States as well as cross-cultural comparisons. When possible, the courses will also focus on case-studies of US adversaries to understand strategic comparative advantage concerning social influence campaigns. This concentration is interdisciplinary and collaborative in nature, teaching the social science of influence campaigns combined with modules on communication, history, intelligence studies, and socio-psychological aspects of group behavior and decision-making. The concentration is aimed at understanding the human element of cyber-operations involving social influence including social media warfare.
