About the Masters Programs
The focus of the graduate programs in MISSM and MISAM is two-fold:
- Part one lays the graduate-level foundation for the respective programs of information security or information assurance, and
- Part two focuses on the generation of a proposal, contributing to the field of information security and assurance, followed by the related research project.
In your future career as a security and assurance professional, you will value the skills developed through these programs as you build your research skills, enhance your communication and writing skills through proposal submissions, and advance your presentation and implementation skills.
