Cybersecurity (MS)

Cybersecurity Degree Overview

There is a shortage of cybersecurity professionals, leaving employers struggling to fill more than 400,000 cyber-related roles. This is your opportunity. A Master’s in Cybersecurity at Thomas will provide you with a comprehensive understanding and skills to secure, protect, and defend valuable data. The program draws on current best practices, framework, and knowledge domains supported by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (Cybersecurity Framework), NSA, and DHS (Center of Academic Excellence), ISC² (CBK for the CISSP and CCSP), and ACM (Security).

“Thomas gave me the skills in this program to really dig deeper and apply advanced problem solving and communications that organizations expect in a higher-level position. Advancing to the next level is an incredible feeling.”
