Welcome to the OU Center for Intelligence and National Security

As an Intelligence Center for Academic Excellence, we are committed to providing the academic foundation necessary to solve challenging intelligence and national security research problems and empower the next generation of diverse, qualified students pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees in areas of interest to the Intelligence Community to serve in the intelligence and national security enterprise.

To achieve this goal, the University of Oklahoma Center for Intelligence and National Security (OU CINS) embraces experiential learning to build valuable foundational capacities in problem-solving, critical thinking, and adaptability. We offer a robust academic program spanning science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), the social and behavioral sciences, and critical languages and provides opportunities for study abroad for cultural enrichment. Students acquire unique skill sets, enrichment experiences, and the personal motivational required to develop the next generation of intelligence professionals necessary to ensure the Nation's security. OU CINS also conducts rigorous research on key national security challenges.

Reflecting core institutional values, the University of Oklahoma as an American Indian and Alaska Native-Serving Institution and our academic partners - the College of the Muscogee Nation, Cameron University, and Langston University - are leveraging our collective capabilities and are dedicated to ensuring all students have full access to educational opportunities allowing them to grow intellectually and pursue their aspirations.
