EIU Master of Science in Cybersecurity

Degree Requirements

The M.S. in Cybersecurity requires successful completion of 32 semester hours of coursework. Because of its focus on practitioners, the decision was made to offer a culminating residential capstone experience, rather than require completion of a thesis. This comprehensive course will separate students into teams that use the knowledge acquired throughout the program to develop security for a computer network. Each group will then be tasked with breaking into another team’s defense system. Post-exercise, evaluation will include discussion, team presentations, and written reports applying program concepts to evaluate the experience, describe lessons learned, produce an IT risk assessment and security audit, and develop organizational security policies and plans.
