Overview

Key Features

This 30–credit hour Cybersecurity program from University of Missouri–St. Louis offers two emphasis areas, each with their own admission requirements. At the time of application for admission, students must choose one of the emphasis areas.

  • Information Systems and Technology Emphasis
  • Computer Science Emphasis

The Information Systems and Technology (IST) emphasis is geared toward management of cybersecurity. Entry requirements include basic technical foundations and/or work experience related to Information Technology (IT). This emphasis is designed for professionals from a diverse set of undergraduate backgrounds who wish to transition into management of information security or general IT management related roles.

The Computer Science (CS) emphasis builds on the foundation of an undergraduate cybersecurity or computer science degree and expects students to have prior background in foundational computer science areas or complete some foundational courses upon entry. This emphasis is designed to be focused on technical aspects of cybersecurity and provides greater depth than that afforded at an undergraduate level.
