BA CI to MS Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is one of the fastest-growing fields in computing in the United States. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts cybersecurity jobs will grow 31% through 2029, over seven times faster than the national average job growth of 4%. This new program offered by the Computer Science department leverages already existing programs that our university offers, but allows students to achieve the same education quality at a reduced rate in a shorter amount of time. 

In this program, students will follow through with the outlined curriculum of the BA in Computing and Informatics, until the students' Senior Year. In that year the student will take courses that are part of the MS in Cybersecurity, as well as any other courses that are needed to fulfill the obligations of the BA in Computing and Informatics. The MS courses taken in senior year will apply to both degree programs, fulfilling elective credits to the undergrad program. Then, after the fourth year, the students will become full graduate students and finish with the curriculum of the MS in Cybersecurity.
