About the Program

Somebody has to help defend the computer systems of the world, and with an MS in Cyber Security, that somebody could be you. Our grads go on to careers in computer forensics, information security management, or forensic accounting.

In fact, there are all sorts of fields where you can put your degree to good use. And because cyber security can take on so many forms, we've brought together faculty from departments in both the College of Arts and Sciences and the Collat School of Business to create this program. As part of the core curriculum, you'll take courses and labs in networking, network security, computer security, computer forensics, cyber risk management, and information security management. Then, you can either focus on cyber investigations, evaluating digital evidence and learning legal rules in cybercrime investigations, or you can learn legal elements of fraud investigation in IT audit/fraud examinations. Finally, we'll help you line up an internship to get real-world experience before you finish your degree and begin your career.
