Cybersecurity Graduate Curriculum

Our online classes are small and students and graduate program faculty work together closely in a virtual atmosphere designed to promote personal and professional development. The program requires the completion of 30 credit hours, and may be completed in two years. The program provides a core of courses at the heart of the discipline and then allows students to specialize in either of five areas: intelligence, computer forensics, cyber operations, malware analysis, or electronic crime.

Check out the course descriptions here.

Cybersecurity Residency Requirement

The Master's in Cybersecurity program utilizes a flexible, online format with faculty-directed study and a three-day on campus residency. The residency will occur in your first semester or when you take CYB 605. It provides unique, powerful opportunities to collaborate with faculty and peers, to participate in hands on team/individual lab work using state of the art technology, and to implement learned knowledge.
