Abstract

The ‘problem’ of designing a professional intelligence education conforming to nationally accredited standards for higher education is resolved by the Norwegian Defence Intelligence School’s accredited programme offered to professional intelligence officers from the broader Norwegian intelligence community. The programme provides an opportunity to develop academic knowledge of intelligence without interrupting career progression, and serves as a forum for developing a shared sense of community within Norway’s security and intelligence bureaucracy. Focusing on four core ‘academic’ intelligence modules, this paper introduces the origins of the school and the rationale for the programme, presents and discusses the subject matter taught throughout the programme and concludes with reflections of the realization of the initial vision.
