About the Program


Fellows discuss contemporary intelligence issues with Director of National Intelligence, The Honorable James Clapper

The Duke University Fellowship in Counterterrorism and Public Policy is designed to provide professionals in the national security and counterterrorism fields with an intensive educational experience that will enhance their understanding of the American policymaking process, empower them to operate more effectively at higher level leadership and staff positions, and deepen their understanding of and familiarity with the counterterrorism and national security issues they will likely confront in their careers. The fellowship will provide foundational instruction in national security studies and the policymaking process, as well as more directed courses in areas such as intelligence, national security and counterterrorism policy, and regional studies. The Fellowship fulfills the Senior Service Education (SSE) requirements for military officers and other U.S. national security professionals.
