Maryland Carey Law’s online Master of Science in Cybersecurity Law will help you understand how the law and public policy intersect with cybersecurity in your job. The curriculum covers identification of threats and actors, Internet governance and jurisdiction, privacy issues, cybercrime, and data breaches, as well as current and proposed cybersecurity legislation, policies, and regulation. Courses are taught by members of the Maryland Carey Law faculty, experts from the University of Maryland’s Center for Health and Homeland Security (CHHS), and other experienced practitioners.
After completing the first semester of core courses, you will take an in-depth survey course in Cybersecurity in your second semester, followed in the third semester by seminars focusing on such issues as:
- NSA, Foreign Intelligence and Privacy
- Homeland Security and Counterterrorism
- Cyber Crime
In your second year you will also complete a Capstone Project under the guidance of a faculty member or practitioner advisor. Your project must demonstrate that you are able to apply at least three of the program’s core competencies to a practical challenge.
