The second purpose is for students to learn and practice structured analytic techniques through various case studies designed to reinforce their understanding of the key points learned in class.  The third purpose is for students to develop critical thinking and writing skills so that they can produce high quality analytical products for various types of consumers, using open source data and structured analytical techniques.
