Intelligence Studies
The Bachelor of Arts in Intelligence Studies is designed for students who are currently employed or wish to pursue positions as military, civilian, or corporate intelligence specialists. Subjects covered in the curriculum are terrorism, espionage, national security, competitive intelligence, regional intelligence, the "war on drugs," and ethnic conflict. Students in this program study the issues that challenge intelligence professionals and learn how each issue fits into larger intelligence strategies.

Offered by the American Military University that admisses International Soldier/Students although most of the topics highlighted above are to-do with the USA you can change it to Foreign Intelligence agencies for example MI5/6. Just to clarify i dont want to go to MI5/6 or to the Int. Corps i just think its a really good and interesting degree if i want a career in the army and it would give me an 'edge'. But to be honest i shouldnt really think this far ahead 8O :p

"an 'edge' " in the "Household Division" involves Bulling boots and knowing where the Golden Horseshoe is to be found.

i take it your a officer entry then. always baffles me why would a AS levels in knowing whee different countries are, how rocks are made, septic history(must be a 500 word essay that one) and politics will help any one hoping to join the HCR. and how can u have part time intelligence? i forget my self, u cna have that, its called cav officers.

Errr sorry mate as it says on my post im going in as a soldier to ATR Pirbright and hopefully getting a commision quite a long time after ive enlisted (once ive finished higher education). And about my AS level qualifications, sorry but they did not have a 'Tank Crewman' and I think A-Level and Geography and Geology would be very useful when navigating in the 'field' and considering one of the Household Cavalrys most important dates is the State Opening of Parliament which youd think would have some ties to AS Politics. :roll: As for American History... well i agree that qualification is useless! :lol: :lol:

so your banking your army career on As levels, and georaphy and geolgy help u navigate, and the opening of parli,ment is all u could come up with to justify your politics level. hope u dont join my lot, u sound like a right norman know all, useful on pub quizes, feck all use at anything else. insults me just to think u are joining the cav, hope the Guards div waste you at pirbright and you decide not to join and go on the dole, so u cna bore people down the job centre, like u have done on here u boring cnut.

dot usually get like this, but pompus arrogant twats do it to me.

Probably a little intimidated by your ambition and education level - get used to it ;)
nope! jsut seeing what he is made off. if the best retort he can come up with is"whats up with this guy"then he fecked in the Naafi bar.
any way why does he have to come on here and blow his own trumpet, he didnt have to mention all the useless qualifications he has earned. go down the careers office next time and see if there are as impressed as we are. Not
 
#17
Well the fact is mate, this aint the NAAFI bar and its just pointless and immature to insult each other and ive got better things to do with my time than 'prove' myself to some stranger on the other end of a computer screen.

Flynn ignore him , he has been here for 2 mins and he is gobbing off about everything , he is a cock . He is a troll as well , he cannot spell there are plenty of other guys kicking about the RAC on arrse who dont feel thick because some one has more qualifications than them . PM me if you have any questions .
 
#19
Cat-weasel you child. I expect Flynn also hopes he doesn't join "ur lot". Whoever they are they must be thrilled to chippy chav like you to look after.

Flynn enjoy the AYT and best of luck.

only been away a few days and all hell breaks loose! you got alot of quals there my man, no disrespect, but why the Army and why the RAC. u are a smart lad so have a good think before u take the plunge, there is alot of crap to take with the good. The HCR are not a bad bunch but do not to get lulled into the bull. have a good look at what the army can offer, with some of ur AS levels perahps the engineers might be a better angle. Good luck and hope you look at all the options before makeing your mind up.
