Utica College's online M.S. in Cybersecurity teaches students to proactively address ever-changing attack and infiltration techniques. 


A leader in economic crime programs for more than 25 years, Utica designed the program in response to calls from cybersecurity professionals for a graduate-level program that combines state-of-the-art practices in intelligence, forensics and cyber operations.

Utica College is on the forefront of Cybersecurity education, offering four master’s degree programs specifically related to information security and computer crimes. You may be asking, “Should I get a Master of Science in Cybersecurity or a Master of Professional Studies in Cyber Policy and Risk Analysis or maybe an MBA? What are the differences? Are the learning outcomes, work experience, requirements, length of time to complete and career paths similar?” While these three degrees each focus on cybersecurity, the differences are clear when you view the three programs side-by-side:
