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 three areas: intelligence, computer forensics or cyber operations.
