Program Description:

Become an information assurance cybersecurity expert when you complete the online MS in Cybersecurity and Information Assurance degree at Fairleigh Dickinson University.

Throughout the program you learn to analyze problems, assess trade-offs, and develop creative solutions, including programs, computer-based systems, and processes. But more than that, you’ll understand the impact of IT-related ethical, societal, and global issues on individuals, organizations, and communities so you know how to make the right decisions and develop sound processes.

You’ll graduate as a trained cybersecurity professional with the experience to lead teams, address information assurance issues, and solve data security problems. And though the cyber field is a vast one, you’ll have the confidence of learning in a program at a university designated as a National Center of Excellence by the National Security Administration (NSA), and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

You’ll be ready to work as an information systems manager, network/systems architect, security analyst or technology manager.
