Bachelor’s to Master’s Progam
Master of Science in Cybersecurity

Earn your bachelor’s and master’s degree for less cost in less time while earning 9 credits that apply to both degrees at the undergraduate tuition rate. 

How It Works

The joint Bachelor’s to Master’s Program in Cybersecurity enables students to earn 9 graduate credits (at the undergraduate rate) that can apply to both their bachelor’s and a master’s degree in cybersecurity at the Thomas Edison State University.

Students enrolled in the joint Bachelor’s to Master’s Program in Cybersecurity take the following graduate courses as an undergraduate student:

  • CYB-530: Operating Systems Security
  • CYB-570: Cyber Risk Management and Incident Response
  • CYB-580: Cybersecurity Strategy, Governance, and Ethics

To earn a total of 9 credits that can be applied to the Master of Science in Cybersecurity, students enrolled in Bachelor’s to Master’s Program in Cybersecurity at TESU need to take the above graduate courses as substitute courses for the following undergraduate courses:

  • ITS-160: Fundamentals of Modern Operating Systems
  • CYB-421: Cybersecurity Risk Analysis and Management
  • CYB-422: Cybersecurity Policies, Programs, and Compliance
