online Master Of Science for Cybersecurity Professionals

This Master of Science program in Cybersecurity Studies takes a broad, multi-disciplinary approach to preventing and responding to large-scale cyber threats and cyber-attacks. The first half of this program provides a foundational treatment of network security, information assurance, cybercrime, and digital forensics. The second half of this program focuses on the issues, policies, practices, and perspectives of various sectors, critical infrastructures, agencies and disciplines, such as, national security, intelligence, criminal justice, and emergency management. The capstone course is a multi-disciplinary group project where individual participants represent different sectors, agencies, and disciplines.

In addition to the institutional and general education level learning objectives, this program seeks the following specific learning outcomes for its graduates:

  • Analyze the national cyber threat landscape and cybersecurity challenges from both external entities and domestic sources.
  • Examine the legal, social, regulatory, ethical, and technical issues related to securing information systems and national critical infrastructures.
  • Compare and contrast the interdisciplinary policies, practices, perspectives and products required to address the cyber threats to our information systems and critical infrastructures.
  • Appraise the methodologies for performing vulnerability assessment, risk mitigation, auditing, and certification of information systems and critical infrastructures.
