We all know that technology is advancing at a break-neck pace. At the same time, so are threats to online safety on our computers and devices. As society grows more dependent on a safe, reliable digital infrastructure, there’s a demand for well-educated cybersecurity leaders to help organizations face today’s challenges. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics expects a 33 percent growth in information/cybersecurity fields in this decade, making it among the fastest-growing fields in the job market.
The Anderson University Master of Science in Cybersecurity program gives students advanced education in the field of Cybersecurity. The degree offers a holistic view of the discipline covering both technical and risk management aspects of Cybersecurity.
Featuring small class sizes and a modern cyber range, this specialized graduate program emphasizes advanced cyber concepts along with hands-on learning to help students excel in the growing cybersecurity field. The majority of the 30 credit hour program is organized into 7-week courses with a few requiring 14 weeks.
The curriculum covers critical topics appropriate for graduate studies to include cybersecurity architecture, data security, cloud security, security governance, leadership, strategy, offensive/defensive cyber operations, critical infrastructure protection, security audits and cyber law. Moreover, each graduate class covers material that prepares students for professional certifications.
The Master of Science in Cybersecurity program is open to students who have completed a four-year degree in computer technology (e.g., computer science, information systems, cybersecurity, information technology). Students without a computer-related undergraduate degree are also welcome but must first take a prerequisite course, Cybersecurity Technology, to prepare for the program.
