Courses by Focus Area

The focus areas offered represent related groups of courses that are relevant for students with interests in the selected areas. Students are required to choose a focus area to follow and to take at least three courses from the selected focus area, including at least one 700-level course. The focus areas are presented as an aid to students in planning their course selections and are only applicable to students seeking a master’s degree. They do not appear as official designations on a student’s transcript or diploma.

The four focus areas each have additional requirements. Applicants should have had a course in networking prior to taking courses in the Networks focus area, a course in operating systems prior to taking courses in the Systems focus area, and a course in both before taking courses in the Analysis focus area. If necessary, 605.612 Operating Systems and 605.671 Principles of Data Communications Networks can be taken and applied toward the master’s degree in Cybersecurity.
