University rank #34 (WUR) , GA,
The Master of Science in Cybersecurity degree program requires 32 credit hours of coursework (including a 5 credit practicum project course),  Two of the core courses, which students in each specialization will take, will provide a broad overview of technology and policy dimensions of cybersecurity.

About

The third flexible core course will provide breadth because it must come from a specialization separate from the one in which a student is enrolled.  Finally, a practicum project (5 credit hours) with common learning objectives across all participating units will be a core requirement. Each participating unit will decide required and elective courses for the MS Cybersecurity degree specialization offered by it (a total of 18 credit hours). These requirements have been defined by the participating units and are described in the next section.

Although all three participating schools will offer a single degree, MS Cybersecurity, the focus of the degree (e.g., technology or policy) will depend on the specialization defined by the offering unit. In particular, each unit will offer the following specializations for the MS degree in Cybersecurity.

  • The School of Computer Science (CS) offers the MS Cybersecurity degree with a technology specialization.
  • The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) offers the MS Cybersecurity degree with a cyber-physical and energy systems specialization.
  • The School of Public Policy (PUBP) offers the MS cybersecurity degree with a policy specialization.
