Overview The Master of Information and Cybersecurity (MICS) is an online, part-time professional degree program that provides the technical skills and contextual knowledge students need to assume leadership positions in private sector technology companies as well as government and military organizations. The interdisciplinary program offers students mastery of core technical skills and fluency in the business, political, and legal context for cybersecurity, as well as managing cyber risk in the service of strategic decision making. Students attend weekly live ("synchronous") sessions with classmates and instructors via an online platform as well as engaging with online ("asynchronous") videos and assignments on their own time. The core MICS curriculum includes cryptography, secure programming, systems security, and the ethical, legal, and economic framework of cybersecurity. In addition, students may select from a wide variety of electives covering topics such as privacy engineering, managing cyber risk, and usable security. MICS features a project-based approach to learning and encourages the pragmatic application of a variety of different tools and methods to solve complex problems. Graduates of the program will be able to: Understand the ethical and legal requirements associated with cybersecurity and data privacy; Know how to build secure systems and applications; Prepare to lead, manage, and contribute to building cybersecurity solutions; and Gain hands-on, practical cybersecurity experience. The I School also offers a master's in Information and Data Science (MIDS), a master's in Information Management and Systems (MIMS), and a doctoral degree (PhD) program in Information Science.
