The Anticipatory Intelligence undergraduate minor is designed to offer students across multiple fields a sophisticated, cross-disciplinary grasp of the security concerns that are increasingly affecting their own disciplinary field and industry as a result of emerging technology. The goal of this minor program is to provide undergraduate students with a refined perspective on traditional national security issues, growing private sector worries, and evolving technological realities in order to prepare them to be strategic thinkers in both the public and private sectors.
This minor will prepare undergraduate students to be active voices in their own future professions with the ability to anticipate emergent security concerns beyond the training and focus of current industry leaders. They will be prepared to understand the progressively interconnected fate of the public and private sector in national and private security issues and help build resilience against emergent threats or unintended consequences of advancing technology.
Students seeking to complete the Minor in Anticipatory Intelligence must apply for and be accepted into the program. The application package is available on the program website, cai.usu.edu, and comprises your transcript, resume/CV, letter of intent, and the name and contact information of a professor who can refer you (a formal letter of recommendation is not required). Once matriculated within the program, students must complete a minimum of 12 credit hours: 6 credits of CAI-prefix courses and 6 credits of upper-division major-field courses relevant to the field of anticipatory intelligence (approved by the CAI academic advisor).
