This course will provide a foundation for analytic and quantitative reasoning. It focuses on advanced, applied skills for problems analysis, problem-solving and decision-making. It is designed to help the student apply the rigor of the scientific method to strategy and information analysis. The course will draw on the decision sciences to teach students about the strengths and limitations of human judgment and decision-making and in algorithmic models and simulations, and how to mitigate the impact of bias in each. Students will also be introduced to several structured analytic techniques commonly used in intelligence analysis.
