National Security Studies

The Gordon Institute became an Intelligence Community Center for Academic Excellence (IC-CAE) in 2005.

FIU was one of four original IC-CAE universities and we are proud of this designation, which provides students with a variety of opportunities for career preparation.

The IC-CAE grant established the Program in National Security Studies, including:

  • The Undergraduate and Graduate Certificates in National Security Studies
  • Foreign Language and Cultural Studies
  • The High School Program in National Security Studies
  • The local SOUTHCOM internship program
  • National Security-related Colloquia Speakers
