10 Best Cyber Security Grad Programs

Universities.com has researched over 70 cyber security graduate programs. They analyzed how each program prepares academic researchers and working professionals to solve the world’s most pressing cyber security challenges. The best cyber security grad programs go beyond cutting-edge technology and hands-on, cross-departmental experiences. They offer cyber security fellowships and internships, government and industry networking opportunities, and projects that directly influence security policy.

George Mason is ranked #6 on the list of best cyber security grad programs and is the only program from the Washington, D.C., region to make the list. Offering two master’s programs in cyber security—one in the School of Engineering (MS in Information Security and Assurance) and a cross-disciplinary program housed in the School of Business (MS in Management of Secure Information Systems).

Both are formatted to turn working executives into cyber security management leaders. Students learn fundamental skills through hands-on activities, often experienced outside the classroom in the real world. Each program also includes a 10-day global residency, where students visit cutting-edge international cyber security enterprises.
