Bachelor’s studies in the field of military sciences, information and public order last 3 years (180 ECTS credits) and are fully funded. At the completion of studies, the graduates receive a bachelor’s degree, accompanied by a diploma supplement, which is released under the law, in accordance with the specific national and international quality standards for higher education.

After the completion of studies, the graduates are employed by the Romanian Intelligence Service as analysts or operations officers. The graduates may also enroll in Master’s programmes at ANIMV: those with the specialization Psychology-Information enroll in “Intelligence for National Security Decision” Master’s Degree and those with the specialization Security Studies and Information enroll in the “Integrated Analysis of Intelligence” Master’s Degree.

The analysts monitor the global developments in order to understand tendencies, decode causal relationships, and anticipate foreseeable evolution. By becoming the keeper of what we know and what we don’t know, you could have the role of shaping the collection of information activities or conveying assessments on important national security issues to the legal beneficiaries, such as the Romanian President or Prime Minister.

The operations officers collect information, which is then included in enhanced knowledge products or is used in building complex operations. The operations officers play the role of assessors of the operative situation, coordinate and recruit intelligence agents.

By using joint teams – analysts and operations officers, the Romanian Intelligence Service prevents the materialization of risks and neutralizes the threats to national security.
