Graduate students with the OIEP-sponsored joint Master's degree program in Criminal Justice toured the National Cryptologic Museum on August 17, 2015.  The facility is located adjacent to the National Security Agency headquarters in Fort Meade, Maryland, and is the U.S. intelligence community's only publicly accessible museum. 

A museum docent gave the candidates a detailed and interactive briefing on U.S. and world cryptologic history, with an emphasis on the World War II and Cold War periods.  Also discussed was the nexus between criminal organizations and terrorist movements today, and the role of cryptology in countering this threat.
