Psychological Operations Department 

JFK Special Warfare Center and School
Psychological Operations Department

The primary mission of the Psychological Operations Department is to prepare qualified, selected personnel for psychological operations-related unit, staff, and advisory positions. The PSYOP department offers instruction to all qualified active and reserve officers and enlisted personnel, as well as officers from allied nations.

The PSYOP Officer Course covers social sciences, PSYOP planning and techniques, and target audience research and analysis. Normally about half of the students in each class are allied officers. The Reserve Component PSYOP Officer Course is taught in two active-duty phases. Personnel use the Army Correspondence Course Program for the remainder of their instruction. The department also conducts the PSYOP Specialist Course, which is advanced individual training for the enlisted 96F (PSYOP specialist) military occupational specialty. The course provides students with training in PSYOP techniques and uses, as well as target audience research and analysis. In addition, the department offers coordination for various joint PSYOP officer and enlisted courses.
