Our master’s degree programs in cyber security provide an experiential learning-rich curriculum tailored to your interests and industry’s needs. The programs offer personalized capstone options and a large number of elective courses. Flexible course scheduling within our programs enables you to start taking classes during either fall or spring semester. We offer a research-based Master of Science in Cyber Security and a coursework-based Master in Cyber Security. You can pick the degree that best fits with your professional goals and interests.
Our Master of Cyber Security program will train you with the latest technology trends in cyber security through a combination of core and elective courses. The capstone course, Experiential Learning in Cyber Security, provides you with opportunities to learn about real-world cyber-attacks and design defense strategies through The University of Toledo’s Cyber Range. Guided by UToledo IT security professionals, the capstone course will help you develop the competencies you need to work as a cyber security professional in a rapidly evolving IT world.
