Saint Leo to offer graduate degree in cyber security starting this fall

ST. LEO — Saint Leo University is recruiting students for a new master of science degree in cyber security through the Donald R. Tapia School of Business. Classes will be offered starting in the fall semester at the main campus, using a state-of-the-art cyber security laboratory. The 36-credit-hour program is geared to current professionals in the information technology field. The program will equip them with additional technical skills in a variety of sectors, including industry, health care, finance, government and law enforcement agencies, and academia. The curriculum takes into account the knowledge required to earn a variety of leading professional certifications in the field.

"The job outlook for this area is very good, and in the Tampa Bay area, the demand far exceeds the supply," said Vyas Krishnan, chair of computer science and information systems at the Tapia School.

The first class of students to enroll will begin by taking classes on alternate Saturdays on campus. The program will be offered online beginning in the 2015 spring semester. Admission requirements include a bachelor's degree in management information systems, computer information systems, computer science, computer engineering or a related field. Faculty will work with prospective students who lack a bachelor's degree in one of these fields and advise them what undergraduate courses they would need to complete successfully to be admitted to the program.
