This four-course graduate certificate is oriented towards students seeking broad exposure to cybersecurity principles and how they relate to national or global cybersecurity, and can be completed in a year. Because these courses are not significantly technical, this program is available to students with a variety of undergraduate backgrounds. Students may choose to take this certificate by itself, or they may take this certificate and then later complete the master's. If a student is accepted into the M.P.S.: Cybersecurity, all four certificate courses count toward that degree.
