The School of Technology and Innovation’s unique structure allows us to offer students in Information Technology the opportunity to obtain a valuable additional qualification while avoiding duplication of class work and requirements. Eligible students who have completed a B.S. in Information Technology, or a BA in another discipline with a minor in Information Technology, may obtain an M.S. in Cybersecurity with fewer required classes. This allows our students to complete their course requirements faster than at other universities, and to be able to better manage their tuition dollars and time to get the qualifications that they need.
Students may be eligible to use M.S. courses to satisfy undergraduate and graduate program requirements. Upon acceptance into this combined program, students would have the opportunity to enroll in the following graduate courses:
- IT 530 Computer Security
- IT 570 Cybersecurity: Law, Policy, Ethics, and Compliance OR IT 575 Information Security Management
- IT 670 Computer Network Defense
- MSC 545 Project Management
Students may apply up to 6 credits of graduate coursework to their undergraduate program.
To apply for the combined program, students must:
- have a declared major in information technology with a specialty in applied cybersecurity, cloud computing, or networking and cybersecurity
- have a 3.4 cumulative GPA
- have earned at least 60 but not more than 90 credits
- submit an Information Technology BS/Cyber MS Combined Program application
