The M.S. in Cybersecurity Policy and Risk Management (CPRM) program cultivates strategic thinking, policy development, and risk-management skills for students interested in careers in business or government. The program features full-time faculty and industry experts who help blend strategy and policy with preparedness, incident response, recovery, and resilience – the heart of our security studies discipline.
Students may come from business, public administration, healthcare, finance, homeland defense and security, retail, law, insurance, and a myriad of technical and engineering disciplines. Prior experience or undergraduate degrees in technical fields are not required.
This is an online only program, taught over five 8-week e-terms per academic calendar year. In the Capstone-Track (non-thesis), students must take a minimum of 30 credits pursuant to the CPRM requirements. In the Thesis-Track, students take 33 - 36 credits to graduate, depending on the specific nature of the thesis project.
