Offered through the Department of Computer Science, the Master of Science in Cybersecurity in Computer Science is designed to meet the fast-growing need for technical cybersecurity experts in national and international organizations, both in the public and private sectors.

With GW's central location in the nation's capital, students can expect to acquire up-to-date skills in protecting computer systems from cyberattacks, while also learning the policy implications of such techniques.

Students take a combination of core courses focusing on the design and analysis of algorithms, computer architectures and advanced software paradigms. These are combined with courses on security (ex. applied cryptography, computer network defense, etc.) and elective courses chosen based on the student's interests.

This program has given GW the honor of being designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence for Information Assurance by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and National Security Agency. This recognition uniquely qualifies students for internships, scholarships and job opportunities with the U.S. government in the cybersecurity field.
