Professional Science Masters Degree in Cyber Security
The Professional Science Master’s Degree in Cyber Security (PSM) is an online degree built to work around your schedule.
Flexible And Supportive
All of URI’s Professional Science Master’s Degree In Cybersecurity (PSM) is designed to support working professionals through flexible online instructor-guided learning, readily-available advising, and the ability for part-time enrollment. Students who can not currently commit to doing a full Master’s degree, can do a Graduate Certificate in Cybersecurity requiring only four courses, and then can continue on to a Master’s degree by taking five additional courses. For students with a non-technical background, the URI OnRamp To Cybersecurity program provides a bridge that prepares students for these graduate Cybersecurity programs.
The PSM program is a unique combination of technical courses along with cybersecurity workplace skills, including a graduate internship in cybersecurity. The PSM courses lead to industry certifications including A+, Net+, Security+, Cyber Analyst+. URI’s courses are developed and taught by teams of academic and industry experts to bring industry experience into the virtual classroom!
