Key facts

The Cybersecurity - Online Degree program offered by Georgia Institute of Technology  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. 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.
