Welcome to Chestnut Hill College’s Online Master of Science in Cybersecurity.
The Chestnut Hill College Master of Science (M.S.) in Cybersecurity is a convenient, fully online, 30-credit program with highly competitive tuition.
The online design allows professionals to complete their master’s degree in 20 months. The courses are taught in eight-week modules, allowing students to complete six credits per semester over five semesters. Courses are designed and taught by subject matter experts who have diverse experience in the field of cybersecurity. In addition to core classes, we have several unique areas of expertise where topics are covered:
- Cyber Physical Systems
- Human Factors
- Digital Forensics
The program has a combination of theoretical knowledge and practical skills in cybersecurity. In the final courses of the program, students will receive individual attention from a faculty advisor as graduate students select a final research topic and complete a capstone project in an area of their interest.
Our program is accredited by the Middle States Association.
Our college also hosts the Annual Cyber Security and Forensics Conference at our SugarLoaf Campus. This renowned conference is co-sponsored by the Chestnut Hill College HTCIA Student Chapter and the High Technology Crime Investigation Association.
Our conference centers on investigations, apprehensions and methodologies associated with the newest breed of high tech criminals.
The conference is also a gathering place for members from the Philadelphia Women and Cyber Security group. Women make up only %11 of the cybersecurity workforce and with such low representation, the Philadelphia Women Cyber Security group advocates for and assists women as they navigate through the cybersecurity industry.
