Master of Science
The 100% online Master of Science in Cybersecurity enables working professionals to train for the most lucrative and rapidly growing career paths in information technology.
This 33-unit program, available 100% online, is ideal for professionals who have three years of technical work experience in IT, engineering and related fields. The curriculum draws from the University of Arizona’s programs in Management Information Systems (MIS), Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), and Systems and Industrial Engineering (SIE).
Two tracks are available: information systems (MIS) and physical systems (engineering). Both focus on applying analytical and critical thinking to plan and execute security measures to shield computer systems, networks and networked devices from infiltration and cyberattacks. Students will supplement theoretical knowledge with interactive, hands-on learning.
Courses cover topics such as:
- Business intelligence data mining.
