(Newser) – Ex-CIA director David Petraeus is replacing one kind of intelligence work with another. Macaulay Honors College at City University of New York says the retired four-star general has been named a visiting professor for public policy, starting in August. Petraeus, who left the CIA after an extramarital affair was exposed last fall, has a doctorate from Princeton University and has written widely on international relations, military strategy and tactics, and national security issues.

He says he looks forward to leading a seminar on the global economic slowdown. (Read more David Petraeus stories.)
