Our program is one of the most unique programs in the United States. Very few schools have three different master's degrees in cybersecurity, or data analytics, or any of them. But in this particular one, we have three different cybersecurity degrees.
First one is our Master of Science in Cybersecurity Operations, and it's for people who are in the operations area of cybersecurity management leadership.

The other two degrees are very unique. The first one is the Master of Science in Cybersecurity, with an Emphasis in Artificial Intelligence.

The program is very tailored toward merging artificial intelligence, machine learning and cybersecurity, which is really a unique kind of field that we're moving into as technology advances. The other degree is the Master of Science and Cybersecurity, with an Emphasis in Data Analytics.

We've taken those two disciplines and really made them complement, putting them together.

Webster was the first few schools that started a cybersecurity program, and I do prefer to learn from the school who started the program first, ‘cause they have more experience.

The thing about having online classes is you can manage your time, right? You know, things do happen like, you do get sick. You do have emergencies.

One of the things about being in the discipline of cybersecurity is the fact that we always change. Our curriculum is never the same.
[Footage of professor and students working hands-on with a server in a cybersecurity class]
As a matter of fact, I don't remember ever having a curriculum from one semester to the next that was the same. As the new threats evolve, we-we respond, we develop new capabilities. We have to teach our students that.
I do feel like how Webster teaches us is definitely lead us to success.
[Footage of professor presenting a lesson in a classroom]
They show us more than one way of how to solve the problem and how people think about the problem in cybersecurity.
One of the things we're very proud of is our adjunct instructor cadre.

We have teachers that come from government, military, FBI, police departments.
They have a different perspective, because they have working different companies, different fields.

So when we ask some general question about internship, about “how do I apply for a job?” I would just email my professors, and they always give me answers and support me.

I think that Webster's programs and what we offer our students, no one comes close to what we do from the standpoint of quality, flexibility and capability.
