Cyber Analytics, M.S.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Master’s Degree Programs

The Master of Science in Cyber Analytics is designed to meet the needs of government, industry and non-profits to evaluate the statistical data generated by their computing infrastructure to determine the state of the organization’s security posture on an ongoing basis. These statistics are often referred to generically as Big Data, but the reality is this information must be combined with relevant facts specific to the entity such as competitors, market position and socio-political factors to determine the threat landscape. This program combines a strong foundation in cybersecurity with hands-on project-based coursework providing analytic experience that can be applied to a wide range of growing concerns.

All required courses are offered exclusively online in an 8-week asynchronous format.
