Graduate Certificate in Cybersecurity

The Graduate Certificate in Cybersecurity is part of a larger graduate program (M.S.) in Cybersecurity offered by UNLV. The cybersecurity program is recognized by a joint designation as a national center of academic excellence in cyber defense education (CAE CDE) by the NSA and DHS. This program is a joint offering from the College of Engineering and the School of Business. This duality within the program ensures that students in the program are exposed to the hard skills related to the engineering/hardware/software aspects of cybersecurity, but also to the managerial skills of controls, risk management, audit, governance and strategic management related to cybersecurity.

Master of Science - Cybersecurity & Master of Science - Management Information Systems

This program allows students who are interested in technology, and especially in cybersecurity to earn two complementary degrees (M.S. Management Information Systems and M.S. Cybersecurity) at the same time in a shortened time frame. Rather than earning each separately, recognizing the overlap between the fields, credits and concepts from the program are shared, and thus students are able to complete the program with less overall credits than completing each separately. This dual degree program is geared towards individuals who want to work with technology and also want a broader view of cybersecurity as technical speciality in their skillset.
