In looking at other programs … there seemed to be an absence of cohesive curriculum design. Not with our program. While others are more a collection of disparate courses, our cyber curriculum was very intentionally put together to take a comprehensive approach.” – Bob Andersen, Director of Instructional Technology, Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota

The 36-credit online Master of Science in Cybersecurity equips you to manage information security programs in small, medium and large organizations.

This curriculum was crafted by people who understand the hiring needs for cybersecurity positions, including real working professionals, hiring managers, information security executives and government officials.

Unlike most other colleges with cybersecurity courses, ours gives you the business leadership skills to manage security information functions and teams in business, finance, retail, nonprofit, healthcare, government, education and other sectors.
