Academic Overview

The ISS Minor is designed to prepare outstanding students at the University of Mississippi for entry-level positions in the United States Intelligence Community, private industry, and public sector intelligence and security analysis.

The ISS Minor is unique, in that students must apply for the minor, and maintain a 3.0 GPA in order to remain in the minor’s cohort.

Core competencies such as engineering, critical language (e.g., Arabic, Chinese), computer and physical science, international relations, and business are highly sought after by the Intelligence Community, and students in such programs are strongly encouraged to apply to the minor. However, outstanding students from any discipline may apply for the ISS Minor.
