This goal is achieved by:

- Passing recommended foundation courses for cyberspace policy, security administration, and counterterrorism specializations that provide a broad perspective on transnational threats and the means states use to address them
- Learning how to work with others in groups and exercise leadership in teams by completing group assignments and projects
