Program Updates, Summer 2018

Pacific's Master of Science in Cybersecurity is in the process of transitioning to a fully online graduate program starting in late 2019, subject to university and accreditor approval. Sign up to stay informed of these exciting developments. Due to this change, however, the cybersecurity program will not be admitting new students for Fall 2018 or Spring 2019.

About the Program

Pacific's Master of Science in Cybersecurity is a hands-on, laboratory-intensive graduate program offered by the School of Engineering and Computer Science. The program is open to students with a Bachelor's degree in any field, and professional work experience can be used to accelerate degree completion.
