M..S in Cybersecurity

The University of Tampa's Master of Science in Cybersecurity prepares students for careers in the dynamic and growing cybersecurity industry. Rapid technology changes and the evolving threats that face modern organizations require educated and equipped cybersecurity professionals. With small class sizes and a cutting-edge cybersecurity lab, this specialized graduate program emphasizes hands-on learning using real-world tools and virtual environments.

The curriculum covers critical topics in cybersecurity and gives students the option of taking valuable courses in project management, business analytics, enterprise systems and SAP certification. The program is also ideal for those wishing to advance in the fields of law enforcement, criminology, criminal justice, forensics, law and government.

The thesis track is for students who would like to gain further understanding of a topic of their interest. Regardless of their career choices, the thesis track can help students learn how to collect, analyze and present information in a meaningful way. The goal is to identify and solve existing problems in academia and/or the industry.
